Many individuals with a developmental disability seek opportunities for continued growth past their high school years. Often, they want to pursue their interests throughout adulthood. Or, some choose to become more involved in their community. We offer individualized and group support that helps people build and expand their skills and encourages continued interaction with their peers and community.

Agency and contracted staff provide one-to-one support to help individuals pursue their goals and interests. Staff help clients so they are able to participate in community activities and opportunities, such as classes, events, and outdoor recreation opportunities.
