Community-based programming provides participants with a broad range of supports to engage in lifelong learning by trying new things, building new skills, developing new relationships, and finding new ways to move from just being in the community to being a valued part of the community.
At Adult Enrichment, participants have the opportunity to engage in both volunteer and recreational activities, in addition to increasing skills in the areas of independence and socialization.
Current participants are engaging in their community in the following ways:
- Meals on Wheels
- Food Banks
- Second-hand Stores
- Community Art Centers
- Animal Rescues
- Habitat Restore
- Walking Trails
- Disc Golf
- Farmers Markets
- YMCA (via Adult Enrichment’s membership)
- Grocery shopping
- Money management
- Familiarity with community locations
- Socialization with community members
Adult Enrichment staff members work with each participant to determine his/her interests and goals, and help establish community outings unique to the participant. Adult Enrichment staff also provides transportation from the program facility to the community activities and assists participants during these outings.
