Community Supports


For more than 50 years, Independence Association has successfully supported people with disabilities who wish to live inclusively in their communities of choice. Day support programs are tailored to the goals and abilities of the individuals served. Activities may take place in our centers or in the community. Popular activities include:

  • Volunteer service -- delivering Meals on Wheels or making dog beds for a shelter

  • Community outings with friends -- from live theater to demolition derbies

  • Healthy living activities -- we "Commit to BeFit" with walking, active sports, healthy meal preparation

  • Creative expression -- visual arts, music and more, sometimes taught by peers from our art studio programs

EnvisionME, Community Works, the Chatty Goose Cafe, and our two art studios are primary launching points for community supports services.
