Our Day Program Services are designed to give adults with intellectual disabilities the skills needed to reach their greatest potential. Participants include those individuals living within our Communities.

Programs include an Adult Training Facility (which includes an aging support component), Community Participation Services, and opportunities to work or volunteer within the community. Please see the links below for additional information.

Since 1975, both Don Guanella and Divine Providence Villages have provided employment opportunities to individuals with disabilities.  Individuals have the option of combining community employment and other day program attendance.

Our Day Programs provide a safe, caring environment that allows individuals with disabilities to create meaningful and independent lives. Protocols are in place to ensure the individuals’ health and safety during the pandemic as well as continued precautions as we emerge from this current public health crisis. All staff who work in our ATF Day Program must be vaccinated against Covid-19 as well as wear face masks. The Day Programs are located at Our Lady of Fatima Parish at 10 Fatima Drive in Secane, PA 19018. Phone: 484-475-2559.

Individuals in the Day Programs are afforded many opportunities to explore their local communities, meet new people and learn new things. Examples include shopping expeditions, visits to the local “Y”, outings to restaurants, museums, theatres, etc., and may network with outside businesses for employment or volunteer opportunities.

CPS provides individuals with an intellectual disability various supports to engage in lifelong learning by trying new things, building their skills, developing networking supports, and integrating into the community.
