The SxS Community-Based Program serves individuals who are living in their own home, apartment, dorm room, or with family/roommates in Brookline or surrounding Boston towns. All services provided in the Residential Program are also available to those participating in the Community Based-Program as a la carte options.
Participants of this program are able to choose the frequency of case management sessions starting with a minimum of two sessions per week during the introductory period, and/or the amount of additional programming they would like to engage in based on their interest and level of need. Many alumni of the Residential Program participate in our Community-Based Services Program after graduating to needing a lower level of support.
Step by Step offers activities every Saturday to provide weekend structure and community integration within the surrounding neighborhoods. Saturday activities can range from visiting museums, attending sporting events, going for hikes, offering peer-led activities, exploring local businesses, and more. These events support individuals with socializing and forming friendships, and help to normalize the use of community resources.
Throughout the years, SxS has offered staff-supervised trips for those who enjoy a true vacation. Examples of past trips include Newport, RI, Washington D.C., New York City, skiing, white water rafting, camping, and Disney World.
