Day Solutions Inc., is an independently owned and operated day habilitation program for adults with both intellectual and developmental disabilities located in Jefferson City, Missouri. Our mission is to provide a safe and stimulating day program where adults with disabilities can learn, grow, and develop relationships with their peers, and actively participate in the community around them. We strive to meet the unique social, emotional, and educational needs of individuals with a wide range of disabilities. We are a fully HIPAA compliant facility that meets and exceeds local and state fire code and OSHA standards. As of January 2018, our facility is currently home to 15 full-time and part-time staff members, 2 volunteers, and 24 consumers and we are currently accepting new clients. Consumers currently attending Day Solutions cover the counties of Cole, Callaway and Osage.
At Day Solutions, we understand that when a child with a disability grows up, the need for services does not disappear. Our goal is to continue to help those in need reach their goals, by providing continued support and services to both our clients and their families. The 2400 sq. foot main area of Day Solutions, Inc. host a variety of work and sensory centers. Our 6 table work centers are used for both individual and group learning, and it's here that consumers use a variety of activities designed to target their personal goals including: academic, social, fine motor and cognitive skills. Our sensory centers which include a puzzle station, art center and therapeutic sand table, are aimed at assisting consumers in building self-awareness and confidence to voice and identify personal preferences for leisure activities; while fostering the skills necessary to develop and maintain appropriate and successful peer relationships.
What is now our 689 sq ft. recycling center is soon to be home to our new on-site Employment Center. The Employment Center will feature a variety of on-site job opportunities including the Day Solutions Corner Store, basic computer and job training courses offered by the Missouri Job Center, Recycling, and more. The Day Solutions Foundation will partner with Day Solutions on this project to coordinate presenters and opportunities for courses open not only to Day Solutions clients, but to the public as well.
In addition to our on-site employment facility, Day Solutions clients can receive on-site speech, occupational and therapy services through Speak-Easy, LLC. Speak-Easy has a partnership with the Day Solutions Foundation to offer speech therapy social groups.
Day Solutions is always looking for new non-profit agencies to provide volunteer work experiences to our clients. Volunteer job opportunities not only build confidence, but provide the opportunity to gain skills for future employment. Our current partners include the Jefferson City Animal Shelter, Fresh Start Market, Buddy Packs, and Grace Episcopal Church. We are eager to establish off-campus relationships, which offer hands on experience such as: stocking shelves, bagging groceries, sorting parts, or other physical tasks. At the present, we have six clients currently working to earn the President's Volunteer Service Award for their volunteer work in our community.
