In October 2016 the Sunnyside program relocated from 90 Southport to its new home at 3600 Appian Way.
Sunnyside provides adult day services for people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities who prefer a more serene setting from the more active atmosphere that characterizes our adult day services at Whipple Court.
The new Sunnyside facility is larger, allowing us to increase our capacity from 40 to 55 people, thereby eliminating a waiting list.
The new location is nestled within a residential neighborhood. This community setting further enables Sunnyside’s participants to engage with people without disabilities. This has a positive benefit for all involved, and allows Sunnyside to conform better to new federal mandates requiring that those who are served with Medicaid assistance have access to the larger community.
