Liberty offers day habilitation programs in towns, villages and the City of Amsterdam in Montgomery County. Each program has its own distinct character, yet all are focused on helping individuals gain independence, achieve personal goals and become an accepted, contributing member of the community.
At each program site a variety of activities take place throughout the day. Individuals and family members are at the center of the planning process to assure that daily activities are in keeping with their personal wishes, dreams and desires.
Daily activities could include work on personal hygiene skills, training in activities of daily living such as cooking, money skills, shopping or creative activities such as drawing, painting and photography.
Individuals in the program are very active in the community through volunteerism and participation in local events and fund raising.
Individuals in Liberty Day Support programs volunteer over 20,000 annually with area organizations.

Community Connections — OPTS (Opportunities for People Through Services) Program
This program, funded by the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) and Liberty Foundation, Inc., has promoted development of relationships in the community, provided work opportunities for persons and fostered learning and individual growth.
The Community Connections program serves as a bridge to employment for persons who are not fully prepared to move from a Day Habilitation to a Supportive Employment Program setting. Individuals learn work skills, small business management, and how to interact with customers. In addition to the employment, individuals also participate in a curriculum such as math, Life Skills, English, and computer training to ensure continuous learning.
Liberty’s Life Skills program helps individuals maintain their existing abilities and learn new skills. Individuals participate in a wide variety of programs including exercise and healthy lifestyles, academics, cooking, computer classes, peer mentoring and involvement in the community. The people in this program experience growth everyday; often attaining skill levels that surpass what they believed was possible. The result is increased self-esteem, independence and a better quality of life.
