About these Programs
The Attain, Summit, and Outlook Day programs are located in Utah. The programs provide community experiences for adults with developmental disabilities for whom employment is not a primary goal. Staff members work with program participants to maximize independence, choice making, community relationships, and meaningful community experiences. Some participants do paid work such as facility support services in commercial and office settings, delivering a weekly newspaper or occasional piecework. The programs each have a special focus.
Attain is geared toward providing a highly community integrated program for individuals with severe, multiple disabilities. The program staff are trained to provide intensive personal care and support while promoting community involvement through recreation, volunteerism and some paid work.
Summit is geared toward providing people with disabilities recreation, community involvement, work preparation, volunteerism and paid work. The program staff facilitates connections with area businesses.
Outlook is geared toward supporting people with autism and/or behavioral challenges to work and recreate in the community. An intensively staffed program, the persons served benefit from opportunities for paid work as well as community activities focused upon the development of personal interests.
Other activities include the use of resources such as local public libraries, public parks, grocery markets, local merchants, community events and weekly trips to senior centers for the older adults. Activities are planned with the goals and objectives of the individuals in mind and based on the individual's preferences and choices.
