Empower Day Habilitation provides opportunities for volunteer work, shopping, parks and restaurant outings, and other integrated activities in the community. Day Habilitation is for individuals with a developmental or intellectual disability who are eligible/enrolled in Medicaid.
Empower offers Day Habilitation (usually called “Day Hab”) in two settings:
Joseph O. Mineo Day Center: a site-based Day Hab program located at 7425 Buffalo Avenue in the LaSalle area of Niagara Falls.
Day Habilitation Without Walls: a community-integrated program with “home bases” at 3571 Niagara Falls Boulevard in Wheatfield and 8962 Porter Road in the Town of Niagara. Participants spend time in the community volunteering and enjoying activities.
