New Haven Community Services was founded in 2015 and has been serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities ever since. We are proud to provide a unique brand of high-quality services to the intellectually and developmentally disabled individuals. Our person-centered services are designed to support individuals in becoming more independent, empowered, and actively engaged in their community. Training and support programs are highly individualized and developed around the specific needs and goals of each individual. Services may be provided in the home, in the community, at school or work, or within group classes created around shared interests and needs.
What We Do
Every person and situation is unique. At New Haven Community Services, we take each individual’s unique needs, situation, and preferences into consideration as we provide them with customized support. We don’t follow a “one-service-fits-all” approach; instead, we take the time to listen to our clients and understand their needs so that we can deliver the support that they need to reach their full potential.
Who We Serve
New Haven Community supports adults (21+) with intellectual and developmental disabilities live independently in their own home through our supported and independent living services. Our support staff partners work closely with our clients to offer education on life skills, companionship, and personal care. Through our services, we aim to empower our clients to make informed decisions about how and where they live their lives.
New Haven Community Services provides quality community support services that are transformative experiences for the individuals we serve.
Our Core Values
- Transformational Change. Transformation is a radical shift in thinking, perception, and behavior. In individuals, it denotes a significant change in the way of sensing the world and relating to internal representations, a change that precludes a return to previous mental models and that leads to large alterations in external behavior.
- Transformative Learning. Learning that transforms problematic frames of reference—sets of fixed assumptions and expectations (habits of mind, meaning perspectives, mindsets)—to make them more inclusive, discriminating, open, reflective, and emotionally able to change. Such frames of reference are better than others because they are more likely to generate beliefs and opinions that will prove truer or justified to guide action.
- Respect and Humility. Self-confidence without arrogance. It is modesty and restraint without the destructive effects of out-sized hubris. The willingness to admit mistakes and seek out guidance. Humility is self-respect without excessive self-promotion. Finally, it is the triumph of competence over bravado.
- Committed to Greatness. A commitment to learning, growing, doing one’s best, and a willingness to persevere in spite of setbacks in order to achieve goals and dreams. Leveraging the innate talents and desires one possesses, and bringing them to the level of greatness through self-awareness.
- Passion for Our Work. A persistent, emotionally positive, meaning-based state of well-being stemming from reoccurring cognitive and affective appraisals of various duties and organizational situations, which results in consistent, constructive work intentions and behaviors.
- Community. Building connections and relationships with one another. It is the opposite of isolation. In a community, we take time to have fun, share our hearts, experience new things and grow together. Community gives us purpose and allows us to think beyond ourselves. In that place, we are able to truly be ourselves and make a positive impact on the world around us.
