  • Functional skill development
  • Behavioral management
  • Responsibility and self-direction

The day hab program is offered in a group setting, Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 3:00 pm.

What are the benefits of “Day-Hab?”

Day Hab Clients

Ian Graves and Bob Reinart, FRC Day Hab clients, make new “friends” at Carroll Animal Rescue

Shari Kitt, Day Habilitation Program Director, said, “This program is very focused on getting our clients out into the community to volunteer in many different capacities, to participate in outings, and to interact with others while developing their socialization skills and many other competencies needed to function to the best of their abilities in everyday life.”

FRC’s Day Habilitation Program clients practice these new skills by volunteering in the Carroll community; helping at the local Animal Rescue Center, cleaning several local businesses, and cooking at the Day Hab location at 104 W. 6th Street in Carroll. Kitt said plans are also being considered for the Day Hab clients to read to children in some of the local daycare centers.
