The Community Support Services (CSS) program provides educational, recreational, social, and functional skill acquisition activities to over fifty adults who either live with their families or in their own apartments throughout Strafford County. These adults do not require continuous and ongoing supervision in order to live successfully in the community.

Some program activities include:

  • Classes in cooking, nutrition and making healthy food choices
  • Home maintenance instruction
  • Assistance in management of personal finances
  • Instruction on conflict resolution and other social skills
  • Recreational activities

The CSS staff encourages program participants to make informed choices based on their personal preferences so that they feel empowered and capable to do the same in their daily lives.
