Community Outreach and Outpatient Services:
Our outreach services offer people with developmental disabilities and mental health challenges the opportunity to receive services while living in their own home or at home with their family or guardian. Multi-disciplinary clinical teams provide a broad spectrum of services including behavioral counseling, occupational therapy, life skill building, social skills and community integration opportunities.
Partnerships with local vendors in the arts, cultural, educational and recreational communities play a significant role in providing those we serve opportunities for community inclusion.
Port Resources clients can also access our outpatient mental health clinic for counseling and life skills programs. Hundreds here in Southern Maine have received outreach and outpatient services.

Professional Training and Software Services:
Port Resources offers training and certification classes for health professionals. Currently, certified nursing assistant certification and direct support certification and continuing education classes are offered.
Port Resources has also created THE EDGE, an electronic documentation software solution. Developed in-house, the software frees up our direct support staff to spend more time supporting clients and spend less time doing administrative reporting. Its success has led to a roll-out of the product that is now available through site-licenses.
