Companions
At Companions, our passion and sole focus is to support our participants and help them reach their full potential.  Since our founding in 2005, the organization has become recognized as an effective provider of person-centered services for people with disabilities. We offer supports by providing Employment, Meaningful Day, and Community Living services in natural, inclusive settings - such as a person’s home or work site and other community locations. We are passionate about adding value to people’s lives. Through our engagement and collaboration with our participants and their families, together we discover what drives each person’s motivations and needs and, in turn, these motivators help define a plan of services to meet those needs. We welcome all individuals seeking supports for themselves and families looking for opportunities for their loved one. Our hope is that we can provide you with the answers you need. Should you want to speak with us one on one, we invite you to contact Sherron Wright, Intake Manager at (443) 760-6608.

Young people—especially those who face challenges such as homelessness, poverty or disabilities—often need help to achieve post-secondary education and career employment. Through collaboration with a variety of organizations, schools and government agencies, we partner with efforts aimed at increasing and enhancing opportunities for teens and young adults.
