Since the beginning of the 2020 pandemic, Imagine Possibilities Center has worked with our community to find creative ways to serve our participants, safely. In addition to our virtual services, we offer 1×1 services. Our staff of highly trained DSPs work 1×1 with small number of participants (never at the same time). Availability is limited because DSPs each serve a limited total number in effort to minimize everyone’s risk.
As always, safety remains our top priority. We have strict safety precautions in place regarding social distancing in public, including mandatory use of masks by staff and strict cleaning protocols.
This program was designed to help alleviate some of the stress, social isolation, and lack of choice participants were facing in their day to day lives when the pandemic forced us all to shelter in place for safety. It brings a bit of normalcy, a regular schedule, and a bit of joy back into the daily routine of our participants who were most in need. Some of our participants have been attending IP for decades with the same favorite DSPs. Being able to spend a portion of their day with the DSPs who have been so central to their lives has been crucial for many of our participants.
Our capacity to offer 1×1 services is limited, as we are prioritizing the safety of our community. We do not currently have any available 1×1 slots available. If you are seeking these services, you may email our Program Manager to ask to be placed on the waitlist. In the meantime, we suggest looking at our virtual therapeutic services.
