Day Services

Having places to go, performing meaningful work, and participating in enjoyable activities are important parts of a fulfilling lifestyle. 

Day Services are adult programs and activities that provides meaningful opportunities designed to enrich the lives of individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Individuals enrolled in Day Services participate in a variety of activities at our centers and in the community and can enjoy learning opportunities such as daily-living skills, health and recreation programs, and volunteering opportunities.

There are several different Day Service options across our four sites–Johnson County, Douglas County, Midnight Farm and Iola–so contact us to see what options may be a good fit for you or your loved one.

Special Events

We partner with a variety of community organizations to offer regular special events at all of our Day Service sites and out in the community. Events can include fine art, performing art, sports & recreation, volunteer opportunities, and more. Everyone is encouraged to participate and we love having such a great opportunity to connect with other community organizations such as the YMCA and Johnson County Community College.

RISE

RISE is a Day Service program for semi-independent adults with disabilities who are interested in growing their independence and exploring the communities around them. RISE participants spend roughly half their time learning valuable life skills via the RISE curriculum and roughly half their time on community outings and volunteer opportunities.
