AHI’s Community Based Day Program is intended to provide a new training model for individuals served in San Luis Obispo County. This program design represents a comprehensive approach to service delivery including a broad-based curriculum that meets the diverse needs of the individuals.
The intent with this new program design is to provide innovative and enriching daily services for program participants. Training will include community-based activities that focus on daily living skills, job preparation and integrated volunteer work, healthy living skills development, self-advocacy, safety, mobility, housing, and social/recreational activities.
Implementation of the program design, specific to individual needs as identified in the Individual Service Plan (ISP) is intended to achieve the following goals:
AHI’s Community Based Day Program utilizes the surrounding natural supports available to San Luis Obispo County. As indicated in the individual’s ISP, the public libraries will offer a location for computer training and remedial reading for those whose ISP reflect that goal.

Cuesta College will offer education opportunities open to the public. RTA offers free mobility training, and the Day Program Instructor will work with each individual to assist with developing positive choices in regard to community living, socialization, community safety and appropriate use of leisure/community resources.
AHI’s Community Day Base Program will be operated under the guidelines and standards as defined in the CARF manuals. At minimum, the following certification and accreditation criteria will be met with the following standards:
