Our Mission is to build a strong safe and supportive community for people with disabilities and their families, while meeting needs, creating opportunities and inspiring inclusion.

How we help:

Individual attention

Our 5 to 1 ratio of participants to staff means your loved ones will have the attention & care they need throughout their stay with us.  We pride ourselves on creating a stimulating, safe and educational environment for everyone’s enjoyment.

The Magic Ratio

As a community active program with a 5:1 participant to staff ratio, participants are always in good company and taken care of no matter the activity.

What makes it special?

There is a lot that makes our programs special.  Often copied, rarely reproduced, we are thought leaders in the care, education and empowerment of adults with disabilities.

Community Inclusion

Our activities promote community leadership opportunities, inclusion and contributing to the community, which includes volunteerism! (Currently modified due to COVID-19)

Accessible spaces

Visit a location near you to learn about our accessibility standards and accommodations, including wheelchair access and safety.

Community Based Locations

Located carefully within communities, our programs have close access to shopping, recreation centers, schools and public transit. (Currently modified due to COVID-19)

Sensory Rooms

Many locations include a sensory room designed for enjoyment with special lighting, music and objects that meet individual and group needs.

Exercise Spaces

Space to move, exercise and play is an essential part of our days that’s why each location includes a gym, exercise room or dance studio on site.

Outdoor Time

Parks, adjacent green space, school playgrounds, walking trails or lakes can be found within walking distance of our program locations.

Full Kitchens

Full kitchens at every site include a sink, stove, fridge and appliances which are essential program features that meet health and safety standards.


Everyone has the right to feel accepted and understood, valued and purposeful.  Come find your place of belonging and let your light shine.
