Description of Services:Community Services is open 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. Our staffing ratio is three participants to one staff person. Our participants are teachers as each person has skills they can share with their peers. The staff members provide support as necessary, but encourage the participants to be the leaders of the program.

Many different community and center-based events are offered each day. On Mondays and Fridays, we offer a participant led walking group at the Sports Zone or local area park. Also on Mondays and Fridays, we offer a participant led swimming group at the Casco Bay YMCA.

Our program weeks are broken down into small group sessions which focus on learning functional life skills necessary to become self-reliant. The program has seven different groups which are chosen by the participants and focus on the skills identified in their individual service plans. Whether it's following a recipe, making change for a dollar or visiting the local planetarium, the participants are guaranteed to be active during the day. Each activity has a foundation for learning and also for developing friendships with their peers. Pine Tree Society strives to help the participants meet their goals and the overall mission of the agency which is Discovering Abilities Together!
