Long-Term Community Integration Programs
- Personal care and medical case management – Our extensive personal care, personal safety and behavior management programs ensure that participants are provided services in a safe and effective environment. Our Springfield, South Springfield, Chantilly and Woodmont program locations have nurses on staff who are trained to react to medical and other health needs. Medical services include the administration of medicines, G-tube feeding, seizure management and first aid.
- Person-centered activities – At the heart of our programs are effective, valued and innovative person-centered activities. Person-centered activities include, but are not limited to, independent living skills, recreational activities, leisure and social activities, current events education, reading and writing and recreational activities. Each of our program participants has a uniquely designed plan that incorporates the individual’s skills and interests and maximizes community integration.
- Therapy programs – We offer a range of physical, speech, occupational and expressive therapy opportunities to program participants. Each therapeutic plan is designed to provide the most benefit for the individual. Innovative therapy offerings include music, dance, and art therapy, as well as therapeutic horseback riding.
- Music and Dance Therapy – Exploring movement and expression through music and dance can release emotional and physical tension and bring a sense of freedom and self-empowerment. It can also improve learning, build self-esteem, reduce stress and provide physical exercise.
- Art Therapy – Art therapy has a range of emotional, physical, cognitive and social benefits. Group art therapy can help provide an opportunity for people with disabilities to socialize as well as provide a safe outlet for self-expression.
- Therapeutic Horseback Riding – Horseback riding has been shown to be one of the most beneficial forms of recreation for people with all types of disabilities. The unique relationship formed with the horse can lead to increased confidence, patience and self-esteem, as well as stronger muscles and better balance and coordination.

Riverfront Community Center
The Riverfront Community Center program was designed to maximize community access and community inclusion. Services focus on both skill development to teach the skills necessary for participation and supports to ensure that individuals have varied opportunities for community participation. Services cover a variety of skill areas such as communication, socialization, self-direction, self-help, career exploration and adaptive skills. Supports include strategies for accessing natural supports, environmental adaptations and assistance with developing opportunities for community involvement, and more. While the program has a physical site which offers numerous activities, participants also travel throughout the community to engage in various community activities and events.
Activities are planned weekly by the participants themselves, in small groups with encouragement from staff. An activities calendar is posted and shared with all participants. Activities may include: Physical fitness, health & wellness activities, exercise classes, computer classes, computer games, socialization, current event discussion groups (with possible speakers), art classes, cooking, visiting speakers, and pre-vocational skills.
While individuals can relax at the center and be themselves among people they spend time with every day, their program also emphasizes maintaining and enhancing community living skills. Activities may include: Visits to museums, courses at the Academy of Lifelong Learning, visits to the library, movies, activities at other centers, volunteer work, trail walking, theater, health fairs, manicures and pedicures, shopping, trips to points of local interest.
Employment preparation continues to be core component of ServiceSource programs. We focus on helping individuals who want to work develop their vocational skills and explore employment options. Participants may choose to volunteer with friends in the community or identify volunteer opportunities to advance their vocational goals.
Participants entering the Riverfront program must be referred by the DE Division of Developmental disabilities (DDDS). If the participant is not eligible for public funding, they must have the ability to privately pay for services. In addition, participants must possess self-care skills and have a desire to engage in learning & community activities. The program is designed for those individuals who have or currently are working either in the community, in facility-based work programs or who are interested in expanding their community involvement.

The Woodmont Weavers Program was renamed to “ArlingtonWeaves, Etc.” which is presently located on the third floor of Sequoia II at the Department of Human Services (DHS) complex (2110 Washington Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22204).
Hours of Operation:
Monday-Friday 8:30 am – 4:00 pm
The Woodmont Weavers Program, started by parents of individuals with developmental disabilities originated in the mid-1970’s as part of the Arlington Adult Developmental Center. At the parents’ request, Arlington County assumed responsibility for operation of the program in the late 1980’s. In 2003, the County outsourced the operation of the Program to a local non-profit agency.
ServiceSource is the current service provider.
The Program teaches independence as well as technical and social skills to its participants. The Program supports these individuals to prepare for and engage in meaningful employment and/or training to increase their functional skills and self-sufficiency. In addition, these individuals have learned to weave and to produce handcrafted woven art and products. Weaving can be therapeutic to individuals with developmental disabilities as they increase motor skills strengthen memory and concentration, and develop their confidence.
