Adult Center

Our Adult Services Programs focus on socially-engaging activities for adults and seniors with developmental or acquired disabilities with the goal of increasing their level of independence and self-advocacy skills, while addressing their physical, social and psychological needs.  Assistance is provided with activities of daily living such as eating, dressing and toileting.  

Enrichment activities include gardening, music, literacy, computer science, art and cultural activities.  Community-based recreational opportunities are offered on a regular basis to libraries, museums, theater productions, parks and baseball games, as well as regional outings.

Vocational Training

For individuals on the “pathway to employment” and a desire to work, learn job skills and earn money, we offer a comprehensive Vocational Training Program in the areas of small parts assembly, culinary, custodial, home health, secure document destruction, landscaping and commercial laundry.  Our program also provides pre-vocational skill development through classes and simulated or real-work experiences.  

We also offer a 2nd Shift Vocational Program, Monday through Friday, from 2:00 pm – 7:30 pm.  This program also addresses pre-vocational issues and pre-work skills but is more intentional regarding performance of jobs and development of work skills that will prepare the individual for working in the community.

If you are interested in exploring job training and placement in the community, visit our Employment Services page for more information on how we can help.

Senior Program

Specialized services and activities are available for seniors with developmental and acquired disabilities including age related issues such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.  Seniors participate in a variety of meaningful activities including trips to the Salvation Army Kroc Center for their “Prime Time for Seniors” Program, fitness classes and outings to Dayton Public Libraries, Five Rivers MetroParks and other facilities throughout the community.

Ancillary Services
