The Daryn Nangano Day Habilitation Center is located at 120 Victory Blvd. on Staten Island. The primary goal of our program is to facilitate the development of a wide variety of activities and work-related skills. Staff teach their participants specific work and related social skills in a variety of settings, including our individual operated businesses which serve the public, such as the On Your Mark Cafe, The Snack Zone , On Your Mark Vending Services and Exceptional Creations, a gift shop featuring unique crafts and gift items.
The Day Habilitation Program assists each participant to learn the skills needed to transition into community living, work and employment. Our Program provides the participants with a wide variety of stimulating activities that enhance their education, recreation, work-employment opportunities, community integration and other essential programs. We also offer a unique Exercise and Wellness program in our fitness center. Our goal is to enable each individual, who attends our Program, to develop independence and productivity in order to reach their fullest potential.
To promote this goal, programs are structured to offer an enriched activity and workplace environment. On Your Mark staff create a supportive activity/work site via implementing daily activity schedules, assigning individualized tasks, and adapting the environment when necessary. Using environmental modifications as supports, each individual participates in a program that promotes their success and self-esteem.
