Unified Community Connections provides onsite day habilitation services for adults with developmental disabilities Monday through Friday at our centers in Middle River, Cumberland and Frederick. Due to COVID-19, our centers have been closed, and our day habilitation programs have been offered online via Zoom. Once our centers reopen, we will prioritize getting individuals out into the community as much as possible.
Our centers are licensed by Maryland’s Office of Health Care Quality and have nurses and activity coordinators onsite. Each center has sensory stimulation rooms, mat areas, computer labs and activity areas. Some of our centers offer daily lunches, and some of our centers provide adaptive feeding techniques, including tube feeding and dispensing of medications, under the supervision of nurses.
Socialization, Daily Living and Vocational Skills
Unified’s day habilitation programs are designed to self-empower adults with developmental disabilities. We offer individual and group opportunities to build relationships within the community and engage in activities focused on socialization and the development of daily living and vocational skills such as:
- Life Skills Classes
- Community Outings
- Arts and Crafts
- Educational Guest Speakers
- Social Events and Entertainment
- Physical Activities
- Sensory Stimulation
Our highly trained staff provide guidance and support every step of the way to ensure a meaningful experience for each person based on their interests, needs and Person-Centered Planning goals.

Unified Community Connections owns and operates one of the largest paratransit (wheelchair lift-equipped) fleets in Maryland. We believe that to achieve independence, productivity and full citizenship, individuals must have access to their community and its resources.
We provide transportation to and from our day habilitation centers and to work sites, medical appointments, recreational outings and local community sites such as banks, churches, libraries and stores.
