PurposeTarget Community & Educational Services, Inc. (Target) is dedicated to enhancing the lives of children and adults with disabilities through quality community-based residential, educational, vocational, recreational and family support services.
ServiceServices for individuals with disabilities are provided through several programs including the COMMUNITY LIVING PROGRAM with nine homes integrated within the community, each occupied by three adults with developmental and other disabilities who are supervised by two live-in counselors. The APARTMENT PROGRAM creates an independent, private living environment for higher-functioning adults and provides 24/7 on-site supervision. The COMMUNITY SUPPORTED LIVING ARRANGEMENTS PROGRAM provides supervision, support and direct care to clients who choose to live with their families or in their own homes. VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS provide comprehensive and individualized job training, placement, and on-going support for persons with disabilities, helping Marylanders with disabilities earn a competitive wage in the community while enriching the area work force. Target provides services, coordination and support to families who have children with autism in the AUTISM WAIVER PROGRAM, conducted under the auspices of the Maryland State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Target partners with McDaniel College to provide a Masters Degree program in Human Services Management. Students intern for two years as live-in Community Living Managers in Target's homes and the apartment program, assuring that graduate students are not only well educated, but gain real-life experiences during their education.
