Health and Wellness Focused
Community Vocational Services, INC accepts referrals for male and female consumers eighteen years of age or older. Consumers should be ambulatory, although consideration will be given to consumers who use wheelchairs that can be transported in a regular vehicle and able to self-transfer in and out of the vehicle. Consumers with communication, toileting and other self-care deficits are eligible for participation in the Community Vocational Services, INC program.
Our training materials are designed to allow staff to train in multiple areas of program curriculum in numerous locations. This new innovative model promotes learning in natural environments and gives strategies that can be applied to our consumer’s everyday lives. We are an Active Treatment Program and strive to aggressively teach and train throughout the 6 hour program day.
Our working consumers have specific vocational goals and we assist them in advancing in their jobs and reaping the economic benefits for learning new skills. Training takes place in various job sites to better assess the consumer’s potential and find the best option for successful employment.

Consumer Driven-Person Centered
I Do, We Do, You Do
CVS Inc. uses this teaching method to help ensure consumers independence. This method is a great learning concept that breaks down tasks into smaller manageable and achievable steps. In the first step, I Do, we show the consumer the process to model. In the next step, We Do, we work together with the consumers through the steps to model in this phase. This step acts as a safety net that consumers may need while practicing. The final Step is You Do. Once the consumer has demonstrated the understanding and can independently complete the task they are in this phase. During the entire "I Do, We Do ,You Do" phases, we check for understanding and verify that the consumers can complete the tasks correctly at their own pace.
