Comprehensive Residential Support:  Kadima provides a continuum of residential services to adults living in 24 Kadima-operated properties that range from 24-hour awake staff care to independent living with supports. Services include…

  • housing in safe, clean, well-maintained homes, condos, and apartments; 

  • transportation to work, appointments, and activities/events (last year 248,724 miles logged);

  • psychosocial rehabilitative therapy, both individual and group;

  • education/vocational support; and 

  • social integration and enrichment and volunteer activities. 

 

Community Living Services (CLS):

 

The CLS program provides services to adults living in their own homes or other residential settings (such as a senior living facility) that can benefit from supports. Last year, Kadima CLS workers provided an average of 40 hours of service each week to individuals, providing the same continuum of service as people in Kadima-operated residences including support with daily living, transportation, individual, and group therapy, and enrichment programming.

 

Counseling Services and Groups: 

 

Kadima provides individual therapy led by master’s level social workers. All adults who are part of the Residential and CLS programs have an active, individualized treatment plan. Kadima also offers a wide spectrum of groups that include dance, yoga, art, and book club. A support group for those who have a loved one with a mental health challenge is offered monthly. 

 

Integrated Care Program: 

 

The Integrated Care Program provides screening for co-morbid illnesses, medical care coordination, and medical advocacy for individuals served by Kadima. The program is coordinated by Kadima’s full-time nurse. Health and wellness education for people served, families, and staff is also part of the program.

 

Enrichment Programs:

The Lois and Milton Y. Zussman Activity Center provides a welcoming community for people served where they can benefit from social and cultural activities, vocational support, volunteer engagement, culinary experiences, and a community atmosphere with peers. Last year, the individuals served by Kadima provided more than 2,100 hours of volunteer services to local organizations.

 

Creative Expressions:

The Creative Expressions Program provides creative enrichment activities for Kadima clients, both as programming in-house, as well as in the community. This includes the visual and performing arts, photography, writing, poetry, jewelry/crafts, and culinary arts.
