Community Habilitation services are habilitation services that are provided to individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities primarily in small groups. These services can be delivered at any non-certified location, including the individual's home.
The Community Habilitation services are primarily habilitative services provided in the community (i.e. non-certified settings) to facilitate community inclusion, integration, and relationship building for adults and youth.
