Community Connections' Day Rehabilitation Services Program (DSVC) is a skills training and motivation enhancement program that supports adults with serious mental illness (and often co-occurring substance use disorders) in their efforts to change lifestyle, overcome obstacles, and recover their lives. We believe people can recover and are capable of living independent satisfying lives, and we help them develop skills that will empower each individual to make positive life choices. Program participants work together in a variety of activities to gain or rebuild confidence and the skills necessary for living independently.

Strong candidates will be emotionally mature, energetic, internally motivated, and value both teamwork and independent responsibility.
