Community Support Services

The goal of Community Support Services, formerly known as Case Management, is to help people in recovery  achieve an optimal quality of life.  We teach people the necessary skills to live independently in the community and get them linked to essential services. We focus on rehabilitation and doing with the person, not doing for. Community Support Services is located on the third floor of 991 Main Street, East Hartford, CT 06108

InterCommunity believes individuals with mental health, or with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders, can recover and lead full lives in their communities.
