The mission of Mt. Bethel Village is to enable moderately functional and more independent adults with developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injuries the opportunity to further advance their skills, independence, purpose and self-esteem in a safe, comfortable and enjoyable setting.
What is Mt. Bethel Village?
Mt. Bethel Village is a unique concept for providing community based real-life supports to individuals who demonstrate the ability to live with a moderate to high degree of semi-independence. The model employs an assisted living approach pioneered by the senior provider community, but specifically tailored to address the unique learning and social support needs of its residents. The program provides extensive social skills training and counseling supports, higher-level life skills training, employment exposure and case management and health services. Staff support is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Who is a Mt. Bethel resident?
Mt. Bethel serves high to moderately independent adults with Asperger's Syndrome, autism, developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injuries. Prior to acceptance, each prospective resident receives an extensive assessment to ensure a compatible integration of the individual's support needs with the support services provided by Mt. Bethel. Once accepted, the individual resides in an apartment in one of three communities. The individual and their family work closely with the Mt. Bethel team to develop a person-centered planning program to meet their needs and goals.
