    Event Description:
    Community Options is a national non-profit organization that provides housing and employment supports for people with intellectual disabilities. Locally, our residential program operates 8 houses in the community where people with disabilities live and receive around the clock care. Our Employment program focuses on providing training, support, and job placement to place more people with disabilities in jobs in the community. Community Options new local office will also feature a day habilitation program for adults with disabilities.  
     
    Community Options has been supporting people with disabilities in Texas since 1993 and Corpus Christi since 2009. As our services continue to grow, we recognized the need to expand our office to support more people with disabilities and their families. We’re excited to open our new office in Corpus Christi which will also include a day habilitation program for adults with disabilities.
