These activitiesencourage community participation and increase skill levels in activities of daily living. Participants are afforded the opportunity to develop leisure and recreation interests as well as participate in Special Olympics.

Employment Small Work Groups

Employment Small Work Groups are services and training activities provided in regular business, industry and community settings for groups of 2-8 workers. Trainees are integrated into the workplace where they can learn valuable work skills. The outcome of this service is sustained paid employment and work 

experience leading to further career development and community-based individual employment. While in vocational training, participants have the opportunity to volunteer in many nonprofit settings. The skills developed in the vocational area are the soft skills needed to prepare individuals for future employment.

Our Goal

United Ability’s Adult Day Program is a person-centered program that supports individuals while they achieve their personal goals. Individuals are afforded daily opportunities to develop appropriate social skills while participating in small group activities. Our Adult Day Program’s goal is for each participant to have a full and meaningful day.
