CSB Services - Employment and Day Support Services


Employment and Day Support Services provide multiple levels of supported employment and day support services for people with intellectual disability, serious mental illness, and/or substance use disorders. The CSB directly operates some services, such as the Cooperative Employment Program and Self-Directed Services, while others are contracted. Partnerships are key – the CSB coordinates with partner agencies (including the Virginia Department of Rehabilitative Services and many others), private businesses, and nonprofit community organizations to provide these services.

  • Day support services are day activities that may include learning independent living skills, enhancing personal activities of daily living, developing pre-vocational skills, and peer-run recovery “drop in” centers.
  • Employment services may include job placement (which for some individuals may be in a group or facility-based setting) and employment service coordination. Depending on an individual’s needs, various levels of ongoing support can be provided.

Approximately 1,300 persons with intellectual disability (ID) receive CSB employment or day services. Many others are eligible but remain on long waiting lists for services. The CSB is looking at various strategies to contain costs and serve more individuals who need these important services.
