Great Bay Services is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting people with developmental disabilities to live and work as valued members of the Seacoast Community.

Today, Great Bay Services provides services and supports to more than 100 people from post high-school age through senior citizens at the Great Bay Services Community Center in Newington, New Hampshire and in numerous communities where people live and work in the Seacoast region of New Hampshire and southern York county Maine. Great Bay Services provides:

  • School-to-work transition services
  • Employment assessment and placement
  • Life skills classes
  • Supervised apartment living
  • Community volunteer opportunities
  • Recreational and leisure activities
  • Day services tailored to individual preference
  • Community integration

Great Bay Services Organizational Goals:

  • Provide the people we serve choices and opportunities to participate in their communities as workers,  lifelong students, volunteers, people pursuing their interests, people enjoying their friends, their families, their environment and their free time.
  • Provide the people we serve a base (our recently renovated and vibrant community center) where they can gather as a community to become healthier, be productive, learn skills in areas of their interest and to enjoy the application of their skills.
  • Provide the people we serve optimal residential options. Our goal is to provide residents comfortable, supportive, safe and attractive places to live where they can express themselves through individual choices and decision making while further enhance their personal skills.
