CR provides a wide-range of supports for adults with intellectual disabilities (ID). CR’s ID services are available throughout Northern Virginia and in the Richmond area. We welcome the opportunity to work with you to find the right match between an individual’s needs and available supports, whether provided by CR or by way of reference to another qualified provider.
We provide a continuum of residential supports for individuals with intellectual disabilities including shared neighborhood homes and independent apartments that offer access to shopping, recreation, social and cultural activities, transportation, healthcare and vocational opportunities. We provide ongoing personalized supports and offer a range of activities to promote community integration and maximum independence.
Community Support Program (CSP)
For adults with intellectual disabilities who live independently or with family, we provide personalized in-home supports that focus on the development of natural supports and the learning of daily living skills. The program is designed to prevent homelessness, hospitalization and incarceration, while promoting community engagement and tenure.
Newbrook Place Day Program
CR’s state-of-the-art day program serves individuals with intellectual disabilities. Newbrook Place is an innovative behavioral program providing a individual-driven environment and community-based alternative for difficult-to-place men and women with a variety of disabilities and intensive support needs.
The program strives to help its participants overcome challenges by achieving and maintaining important living skills.
Those served at Newbrook Place receive a minimum of six hours per day of comprehensive habilitation training based upon self-defined preferences as outlined in each person’s Individual Service Plan. The day program offers intensive supports with a lower-than-average individual-to-staff ratio. Program participants are provided with multiple skill-building activities including therapeutic horticulture and art, personal development, food preparation training, self-advocacy and community networking and involvement including regular visits to a local gym and shopping activities.
While the program is center-based and incorporates dynamic clinical services and interventions, 50 percent of Newbrook’s services are provided in the community.
