Community Participation Supports (CPS) now being offered.

We have been approved by the Pennsylvania Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) to provide Community Participation Supports (CPS).  This program is DIFFERENT from our group activities. CPS takes up to 3 participants at a time out into the community (however currently Special Recreation only works 1:1 with our CPS participants) to work on their specific goals that they might have to help them achieve independence in the community while working on their socialization and other goals that they may have. One example is that maybe someone wants to lose weight but they do not want to work out at a gym by themselves.  We would provide a staff to help them work on their weight loss goal while out in the community.  If you are interested in CPS, you need to contact your Supports Coordinator at MH/DS to see if you qualify.


Due to COVID-19 our group activities are currently limited to once a week or less. 


20th: Art Class: Wednesday (10:30-11:30 am) Shawnee Art Shed (107 Shawnee Square Drive,   Shawnee on the Delaware). We will be painting so please wear old clothes.  An                               Additional $5 will be put on your monthly bill.   No lunch today.


27th: Movie and Lunch: Wednesday (10:30 am) at the Casino Theatre. (1403 Pocono Blvd (Route 611). Mt. Pocono, PA).  This will be a private showing just for our group and no one from the public will be there.  We will be able to spread out through out the whole theater for social distancing. We will watch “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”. We will be celebrating Joe’s Birthday with a Pizza for lunch.  Depending on how many people sign up there may be an extra $5 charge for staff and family members who stay to watch the movie


Please note that activity dates and times are subject to change and we will try our best to give you as much notice as possible
