Our programs include Supported Living Services, helping individuals to live in their own home with
the rights, safety, choices, power, and control that this implies; and Supported Training for
Employment Placement (STEP Day Program): which offers community-based vocational training
for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities with the goal of developing social and
vocational skills and facilitating greater community integration through employment.

San Rafael, CA 94903
In 2015 OFI transformed its STEP Day Program into a state of the art job readiness and employment first program
with the goal of providing competitive employment opportunities in non-sheltered, non-enclave settings
for all of their program participants.
OFI's Supported Living Services (SLS) was created in 2003 when we saw the need and desire of many participants
to live independently. Individuals in our SLS program may come from their parents' homes, group homes
and other facilities.
Supported Training for Employment Placement serves individuals 22 and older who have developmental and/or
intellectual disabilities and who need behavioral support to be successful. Today we are proud to be
actively implementing the Employment First Initiative.
"OFI envisions a world where all individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities are able to exercise
their right to self-determination and realize their aspirations."
For over twenty years, OFI has been recognized as a premiere provider of services to adults with developmental
and intellectual disabilities who need behavioral support. Our relatively small size and low client to staff
ratio has made it possible for us to address individual needs and tailor services to our constituents.
