Day Program FAQs
How are day services funded?
Typically by MassHealth, but funding can come from out of state DDS or private pay.

Our average age is 27 but service begins at age 22, or once you are unenrolled in school. If you are a good fit we would love to have you.
What do our members look like?
Our members are active and motivated to continue to learn and develop life goals. Members are excited to come to Transitions and be a part of our team.
Is there a wait list?
Yes, usually. But don't let that discourage you.
Do you provide transportation?
Can you attend part time or half days?
The minimum attendance in Day Services is 3 days per week. We can accommodate half days, as long as those half days are a part of the 3 day minimum.
What are some of the activities you provide?
A typical day at Transitions begins with light aerobic exercise and a group discussion. We have a wide and diverse range of activities from cooking and budgeting to music and art therapies, dance and karate classes, team sports and volunteering in the community, with most activities taking place out of the building. We focus on social skills, teamwork, and being active members of the Cape Cod community!
Will I be out in the community?
All the time!
Employment Services FAQs
Will I be working with a group?
No, Transitions only supports competitive employment. Competitive Employment means a community job that any person can apply for, in integrated settings with a variety of people, that pays at least minimum wage.
Do you provide 1:1 support?
Yes, during training and ongoing as needed. We do not provide 1 to 1 coaching on the job forever, as this does not fit with the competitive employment model.
How often would I meet with my job coach?
As often as you need to and the two of you decide. Supports are individualized, so for some it could be a weekly meeting and others may prefer phone or text communication, it depends on what is effective and most comfortable to you. We ask for open and honest communication with us and you should expect that in return.
Day Services are funded by Mass Health or Private Pay. Mass Health will also fund transportation to and from your home to Day Services.
