ABOUT US

Focus Forward is a 501-C3 nonprofit serving young adults with special needs. We are listed under MedWaiver as a Life Skils Development Level 3 Adult Day Training program. Focus Forward is a Medicaid Waiver provider and accepts both MedWaiver and private pay.

Focus Forward is a new initiative for young adults with disabilities, ages 22 and up, with a focus on improving their socialization skills, building independent living skills, and working on community integration. Focus Forward differentiates itself from other ADT3's because we have age specific cohorts. Meaning each of our clients will be growing around peers of similar age, interests, and life experiences.

Under the iBudget Handbook, LDS3's "are training services intended to support the participation of recipients in valued routines of the community that are age and culturally appropriate. ADT services include the provision of activities in a non-residential setting which provides training and assistance with acquisition, retention, or improvement in self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills. ADT services may include recreational and other activities to enhance social development and development of skills in performing activities of daily living and community living. The training, activities, and routine established by the ADT provider must be meaningful to the recipient and provide an appropriate level of variation and interest. Activities and environments are designed to foster the acquisition of skills, building positive social behavior and interpersonal competence, greater independence and personal choice. Volunteer activities not related to employment training may be included as part of this service."

The current program hours run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Closures are always added to event calendars and sent out to families in advance. Check out the event calendar on the "News" tab for examples of the fun stuff we do here, and more.
