Community Options

Community Options provides an engaging and safe environment that enhances dignity, uniqueness and independence for adults with significant disabilities.

About the Program

Community Options supports individuals with severe and profound cognitive and physical disabilities by giving participants choices over their daily activities.

Established in 1987, the program serves participants with a range of disabilities and various clinical support needs.

Nursing services are provided on site by a full-time and part-time registered nurse. Funding is primarily provided by the State of Maryland Developmental Disabilities Administration with supplemental funding from Montgomery County.
