Providing daily support to adults as they work toward their goals.

Participants receive support and individualized assistance as they identify community participation goals, develop action plans, and make daily choices about the activities and interests they will pursue. The people who receive support through Community Integration Services take part in a wide variety of volunteerism and recreational activities throughout the St. Louis area.
