Our Program…

Community Excursions – They call us ‘Adults In Motion’ for a reason! You can always find us on the go throughout the community  enjoying special events, creating inclusion opportunities or giving back through volunteerism. We put words into ACTION!

Community Inclusion & Meaningful Activities – Everyone deserves to find meaning and purpose to their day and that happens at AIM! Our activities promote community inclusion,  a sense of accomplishment and being a contributing member in our community – which includes volunteerism! We all have gifts to give, we will help you find and share yours.

Friendships – We dare you not to smile! Come find a good laugh, a wide smile or a new friend here at AIM. With a diverse group of participants and interests, there’s someone here who can’t wait to be your friend! 

Skill Building – Shhhh, it’s our little secret… but while we’re having all this fun, we’re really building new skills and finding new strengths within ourselves

Inclusive Atmosphere – Your interest and ABILITIES matter to us! Programming and special activities are designed around our participants and their passions – no matter how big or small. There’s no square pegs fitting into round holes around here! Come find a place of belonging here at AIM!  

Exceptional Staff – Our staff make the difference and represent the heart of the AIM experience. Our staff teams share decades of combined experience working with vulnerable individuals and each are experts in compassion and acceptance. Their passion for enhancing the lives of our participants and their big hearts make them exceptional human beings we are lucky to call ours. 

IN Motion – AIM believes in programming that promotes a healthy lifestyle, recognizing the importance of daily physical activity as well as healthy bodies and healthy minds.

Spreading the Love..

“When I found myself with some extra time on my hands, I knew I wanted to volunteer “somewhere” doing “something”, but wasn’t sure how I wanted to fill in those two blanks! I happened across an organization called Adults In Motion, (AIM), a day program for adults with developmental disabilities. I was intrigued, and met with them for an interview. When I left, I knew that was exactly how I wanted to volunteer my time!

I am very grateful to AIM for allowing me the opportunity to volunteer for them. It is about giving, contributing, building relationships, and trying to make a difference in someone’s day. Every individual has their own special, endearing qualities that remind me of the importance of connecting with other humans, enjoying the victories, large and small, and appreciating and respecting our differences. The sense of gratification I get from spending an afternoon at AIM is something that I can’t put into words. Thanks AIM!!”
