Engagement opportunities, activities, and experiences for adults with diverse abilities


The Discovery Program assists adults, 19 and older who are diagnosed with diverse abilities, with increasing self-esteem, socialization skills, and increasing their independence. Discovery provides opportunities to participate in a variety of community activities, including volunteer work experience. Our program is participant-centered, and our daily activities are designed to reflect individualized client interests and goals.

Discovery Program participants pay for most of their daily community activities. Participants are provided with a monthly activity schedule and will know in advance of upcoming activities and the cost of each. Participant’s can indicate if they wish to participate.


Our Program Goals:

  • To encourage and support individuals of all abilities to live fulfilling, interactive, and productive lives
  • To provide a supportive environment which offers a wide variety of engagement opportunities, activities, and experiences
  • To inspire individuals in identifying and achieving great personal goals & objectives
  • To foster the development of skills, leading to increased independence and autonomy
  • To promote and stimulate the formation of healthy peer relationships, which then can be self-sustained in the broader community
  • To provide volunteer, pre-employment, and work opportunities
