Our Adult Disability Services day programming consists of two main programs: MABHab and MABWorks. MABHab is the day habitation program serving adults with developmental disabilities and brain injuries ages 22 and older, and MABWorks is a vocational program aimed toward obtaining community employment for our clients. Our progressive day programming takes an individualized, person-centered approach to serving each client's needs.
