Work Programs

Southeast Works main facility (181 Lincoln St) is a training facility that helps individuals build working, social, and personal skills. We offer work in many different skill levels to fit the individual, and we are constantly evolving to fit the needs and wants of our participants.

Day Habilitation Programs

Connections Day Program is a full day program located at 2485 Broadway, which provides participants the opportunity to practice work skills as well as receive services to help each individual build relationships and connect with their community.

Home-Based Community Habilitation

The Community Habilitation Program provides instruction and supervision to program participants in all aspects of daily living skills. These skills/goals are chosen by the participant and are identified within the program participant’s Community Habilitation Plan. The goals are set to assist the individual to become more independent and thus better prepared to live independently or within a supported lifestyle setting.

Residential Services

The Southeast Works Residential Department provides housing opportunities for persons with developmental disabilities through IRA’s (Individual Residential Alternatives). This gives the residents the opportunity to live independently with their peers and promotes decision-making initiatives.

Respite Services

Most people use the word respite to describe a brief delay or break. However, for thousands of Western New York families who care for their adult children with developmental disabilities, respite is a vital service that dramatically impacts their lives.

Medicaid Service Coordination

A Southeast Works Medicaid Service Coordinator (MSC) is responsible for helping the families and care providers of persons with developmental disabilities stay informed of available programs and services and assists in the process of enrollment for desired and/or needed services. MSCs meet with participants at least once monthly and every three months at a person’s home to ensure face-to-face communication between the MSC and family members or care providers, laying the basic foundation for the relationship to grow between an individual and his or her Service Coordinator.

Recreation Programs

The Traditional Recreation section should read: Southeast Works Traditional Recreation serves all individuals within the surrounding areas whom have a Developmental Disability. Individuals are able to choose which events they would like to participate in by selecting from a bi-monthly calendar. There is a fee for the events and individuals may require additional spending money. The events range from going to the concerts like the Taste of Country at Coca Cola Field to painting pottery at Clay Hands Ceramics and everything in between.

Transportation Services

We travel over fourteen hundred miles each day, and all vechicles are serviced regularly and kept in very good condition. SEW drivers inspect the vans they drive daily and any problems, including heating and air conditioning, are addressed quickly. If a problem cannot be addressed in time for a scheduled run, a back up van is substituted to insure appropriate service.

Self Advocacy

The Self Advocacy Program is a group that strives to make a difference in the lives of persons with disabilities. The group is run by people with a disability for people with developmental and other disabilities. The group discusses concerns that affect themselves locally as well as statewide.
