Supported Living:

  • 24 hour, individualized supports to enable people to live safely and as independently as possible in the community

Design Room

The Design Room provides a place for persons with disabilities to not only have self-discovery regarding their entrepreneurial possibilities but create business plans and marketing strategies to sell their products. The Design Room is also available for rental by contacting NHCIA.

Once a month the Design Room offers an art based activity called Kairos to members of the community and people NHCIA supports where they create together while developing natural connections.

 

The Hub

  • The Hub is used 2 days a week for people supported by NHCIA.
  • The Wednesday Hub provides an opportunity for self-advocates to socialize with their peers. Training in various topics i.e. street safety are also provided during the year.
  • The Thursday Hub provides training in meal prep as well as developing their hosting/social etiquette skills.
