Day Habilitation With & Without Walls


Day Habilitation programs are offered to individuals who live in residential settings as well as by themselves or with family. These programs include purposeful and meaningful activities and are designed to foster the acquisition of living skills, appropriate behavior, greater independence and personal choice.

Our services are offered in Brooklyn and Queens and include a wide network of services and skills training areas, including:

  • Daily living skills
  • Community outings (to find resources to achieve consumer’s objectives)
  • Vocational training
  • Employment opportunities
  • Recreation
  • Choices regarding personal goals

Day Habilitation Without Walls

These community-based life skills are achieved through volunteer work, peer activities, physical exercise, travel planning, participation in art and cultural activities, learning money management skills and more.

Meet Charles
Dreams Become Reality for WellLife Network Resident
<p>Charles has a passion for hockey. His favorite team is the New York Islanders. He watches their games on TV with the intent of the most devoted fan. That all changed when he was invited to view an Islanders game from special box seats at Barclay Center. The seats were donated by our corporate partner at Carr Business Systems, a Xerox Company. Charles had a front row seat and for two hours was transported right where the action was happening.</p>

<p>According to Charles, "This was the best game ever, and I was there." To top it all off, Charles and his house manager were treated to a free Islanders T-shirt and all the food they could eat.</p>

<p>The best part, according to Charles, was the ending, "The Islanders won! It was great."</p>

<p>Charles is one of ten residents of the Laurelton IRA, one of 33 residential facilities operated by WellLife Network for individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. Our residential team of caring, compassionate professionals guides and supports each person's physical, emotional and educational needs. Charles receives daily living and socialization skills with the goal of encouraging him to become an active participant in the community and as independent as possible.</p>
Give, so others can live well.
