Community Participation Services
Community Participation Services’ programs provide a safe and engaging environment that encourage people with a developmental disability to pursue new experiences, challenges and relationships in or near their own community.
Participants also have the opportunity and support to prepare for and pursue employment. For more information about employment opportunities please click here to visit NSS’s alliance partner, Niagara Training & Employment Agency (NTEC).
