Volunteers of America Southeast demonstrates that “there are no limits to caring” through our services for People with Disabilities.

Our residential/in-home support for individuals with physical, mental, and intellectual disabilities enables people to live more independently in the community.

Men and women receive services in their own homes, apartments, or in one of the many community homes or apartments managed by Volunteers of America Southeast.  

 

 

 

 

These services include:


There are 24-hour on-call nurses to monitor healthcare and medication administration. Behavior Supports are available for people who need positive reinforcement and specifically tailored Behavior Support Plans. People receiving residential services experience many leisure, social, and recreational activities which are developed depending on the wants and needs of service recipients. Building social capital and community integration are important skills that Volunteers of America includes into all services which are provided on a 24-hour basis. Volunteers of America is accredited by CQL, the Council on Quality and Leadership. To learn more about this prestigious accreditation visit www.cql.org.  

Personal Care

Personal Care Assistance Services help a person with their day-to-day activities in the home and their community. These services are for people who live in their own homes or apartments and provide assistance with activities and tasks such as managing finances, medical issues, self-administration of medication, meal planning and preparation, shopping, travel training, getting along with neighbors, and making good choices. Staff members meet with individuals for as few or as many hours needed (depending on the needs of the individual served). Staff members can also provide advocacy as needed.


Day Habilitation

Volunteers of America has Enrichment Centers throughout the state for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Our centers offer them training to increase their independent living skills, self care, communication, behavior, interpersonal skills, and vocational skills. In addition, people can choose to take a variety of classes such as cooking, money management, exercise, visual arts, music, enhanced communication, and social experiences. These services are provided through our professional staff at our centers throughout Alabama.


Supported Employment

Our supported employment program assists individuals with disabilities through every stage of the employment process. Men and women are assessed to determine what types of jobs interest them, assisted in the application and interviewing process, and provided the support of an on-site job coach. Long-term follow up is provided on an indefinite basis.
