Clinical Service & Support


The BAGS Program is a qualified vendor contracted through the Department of Developmental Services

The BAGS Foundation CT provides individualized day supports, personal supports, adult companions, and transportation. Our mission is to provide individuals with personal growth, independence, and an opportunity to embrace their strengths through our curriculum with the assistance of our Direct Care staff.

Counseling & Mentoring


Supporting healthy and productive lifestyles

The BAGS team believes in the transformational power of therapy. That is why our counseling services are open to both youth and adults. Many students who participate in our rec programs also utilize our counseling services. Our ABH-certified BAGS mentors guide and empower students to make positive life choices. Our focus is on developing great students who achieve positive academic and personal goals.

Pro-Social Recreation Programs


Hope + Opportunity through sports development and competition

This student development program offers daily recreational activities along with tutoring, career development, and personal enrichment. Youth sports act as a powerful mechanism to improve social development, self-esteem, health, and athletic ability. At BAGS we find achievement in sports translates directly to improvement in the classroom.
