MICC Community Program.
MICC’s Community Program is a life-long program that provides a wide variety of program options and services to its participants to both thrive in and remain living independently in the community. We value communication,
relationships, and education with our families toward this end; and we serve an integral role in the long-term independence of their loved ones.
Community Program participants are individuals on the autism spectrum and those with learning
differences who have successfully completed the MICC College Program and are living independently in Richfield, MN and surrounding areas.
Programming and services are divided into several customizable and person-centered service areas to ensure holistic coverage of well-being and safety of the participants in the program.
Participants may opt for a variety of Advisory Supports to provide guidance and support in conflict resolution, emotional support, general check-ins, medical coordination, service
coordination with both internal and external providers, extra family communication, social engagement coordination, and a wide array of problem-solving supports needed to tackle unique and challenging day-to-day issues.
Independent Living Skill Supports
Our program staff are able to support participants with prompting, guidance, and limited physical assistance in some tasks of independent living including cleaning, monthly bills checking, laundry reminders, help with weekly schedule building, assistance in making appointments, transportation, and other basic home care and follow-through with tasks to maintain or improve participants level of independence and safety.
Our Wellness Program team implements Wellness programming accessible to all participants within the Social Engagement Program and also offers customized services, including nutrition planning, cooking skills development, fitness coaching, and motivational cues. Supports can be delivered in many ways ranging from 1:1 support to small group or virtual supports, and are customized to meet the participant's needs.
