Mill Neck Services’ Day Habilitation Program Celebrates Fun Friday

Mill Neck Services’ Day Habilitation (Day Hab) Program, located in Hicksville, N.Y., helps adults with developmental, intellectual and physical disabilities, as well as medical and communication issues, to reach their fullest potential.

Building self-confidence at Day Hab

Day Hab consumers celebrated “Fun Friday,” where they were able to enjoy the movie “The Sandlot,” and learn how to cook a tasty enchilada casserole dish as a group.

Mill Neck’s Day Hab program provides functional and enjoyable activities that enable participants to meet their individual goals and become more independent in their daily living, socialization, communication and leisure activities.

The Day Hab center also features an in-house coffee shop called “Have a Nice Day Café,” completely run by the consumers on a daily basis, working the cash register, greeting customers and preparing the coffee. Consumers also participate in “coffee chats” within the community, where they travel to different local coffee shops and simultaneously learn travel training skills, like how to properly cross the streets.

Volunteer work is an integral component of the Day Hab program. As dedicated volunteers, Day Hab participants acquire new skills, develop meaningful relationships, contribute to their communities and build self-confidence.

Day Hab is very active in the community with Meals on Wheels, Last Hope Animal Shelter, teaching American Sign Language to the elderly and more.
