Breaking Barriers Volunteer

While working with a Direct Support Professional, a volunteer could be doing one of the following: supporting someone with improving their literacy skills, helping someone to write a cover letter and resume, connecting people with social groups, and/or numerous other independent living skills, post-secondary education options, and vocational goals. Your volunteer time will meet community service hours and may count toward your clinical hours. You can help at community events and/or help out with job coaching a participant or sharing a professional skill that can benefit others.

About usThe philosophy of Breaking Barriers is to respond to the specialized vocational needs of people who experience developmental disabilities. Through various person-centered planning tools, we will ascertain the gifts, hopes, wants, and dreams of the individual and discover how these attributes can contribute to a reciprocal relationship within the community. Breaking Barriers believes in a person-centered approach that focuses on the strengths of an individual as opposed to the service model, which tends to highlight ones deficiencies. Using the natural environment creates opportunities to learn skills that an individual needs to be successful in all aspects of life.
