The Community Habilitation Program (CHP) is an independent living skills training and day program for individuals, age 18 and over, with severe disabilities. The program provides at least six (6) hours of daily services to adults with significant disabilities needing independent life skills training and other services to engage in socialization and integration in the community.

Participation at CHP is by referral only from the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse (DMHSA) as part of the individual’s treatment plan.
