Partners In Community (PIC) is a private not-for-profit social service agency, that provides community supports for persons living with a disability. We are an agency that believes in person centered supports and self-determination. We stand by our philosophy that as a community member, an individual has the right to live in the home of their choice and to live with the people they wish to live with. An individual has the right to pursue a vocational occupation of their choice and be provided with the supports of their choice. Each individual has the right to determine how and in what manner his or her life should unfold. Part of PIC's mission is to ensure that each individual who is supported is allowed to thrive in the least restrictive environment that assures his/her health and safety.
We offer various community supports for nearly 50 adults and/or children in their residence and/or within the community. The community supports range from residential services, supported living, supported employment, community based, and representative payee services. We offer unique supports as requested by the individuals and the individuals' support teams to facilitate the person centered planning process and implementation of those person centered outcomes. PIC provides supports for individuals living with their family and/or living on their own throughout six counties in the state of Ohio. Each individual has different needs and/or aspirations that may require varying hours of supports. PIC's dedicated team members support the individual interests from daily living skills to the recreational and social interests.
