Community Based Programs

The Key to Community and Personal Growth

Through community engagement programs, individuals with disabilities grow relationships within their community and share their gifts as contributing members of society. Community engagement is especially important for adults with disabilities because it breaks down barriers and gives them opportunities to progress toward greater independence and overall happiness. We focus on encouraging clients to interact with one another and the greater community through building relationships, engaging in meaningful activities, and providing volunteer opportunities.
