Tailored Day

Bridging Community Resource (BCR) Tailored Day Service (TDS) is a unique, community-based day program focusing on volunteerism, employment skills, and higher learning. While most programming will be in small groups (2-3 consumers with one instructor), a 1:1 ratio is occasionally available, depending on the consumer’s desired activities. For example, assistance with homework would be done at a 1:1 ratio, while volunteering at a food bank would be scheduled as a small group activity.

Clients are authorized for 40 hours per month of service. This means TDS is a part-time day program, and clients are not seen every day. Also unique, the program is not bound to traditional program hours. Appointments may occur any day of the week, in the morning or afternoon. With the anticipation of maximizing life satisfaction, this exciting program tailors our participant’s day based on their personal choices, hopes, and ideas. All 40 hours per month are not required; some individuals use all 40 hours monthly, while others use only part of their 40 hours. However, once the monthly schedule is created, the client is expected to not cancel appointments except for illness or an emergency.
