Community Based Day Services

OutingCBDSCommunity Based Day Services (CBDS) engage Riverside participants in a range of community experiences, programs, trainings and life enrichment.

CBDS is designed to meet each participant's interests with opportunities for experiential learning and skills development. CBDS participants work on job training skills, personal growth and development, and heightened awareness about the world around us. Organized activities in the greater community provide learning opportunities for socialization, communication, while promoting physical and cognitive health and well-being.

CBDS experiential learning covers a broad range of activities. They includes trips to local museums, parks, libraries, events, public safety organizations, nature excursions, news writing, computer skills, meditation, martial arts class, yoga, music appreciation, and innovative art projects.

CBDS participants also volunteer at local non-profits, social service and civic organizations.

CBDS is committed to a continuum of services and programs to promote maximum engagement in the local community, while strengthening skills and life learning.
