Day Program

A program that prepares individuals for a more independent life.

Through our Day Program, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) explore many different avenues to support personal independence and promote social, physical and emotional well-being.

Our Day Program classes include Visual Arts, Performing Arts and Functional Life Skills. All classes are geared toward increasing and maintaining skills that assist individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) in being an integrated part of their community. Classes and activities offered through the Day Program, along with a variety of community outings, are designed to develop and maintain skills in:
• Communication and language development.
• Health and safety skills.
• Money management.
• Independent living skills.
• Socialization with peers and the community through integration.
• Advocating for rights, needs and choices.

A day program option for adults who are aging with IDD.

Adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities face new challenges as they age. Activities in this program are geared toward maintaining skills and remaining active in an engaging environment. My Turn helps individuals stay in their home of choice longer, delaying institutional levels of living because they have a place to be during the day where they are connected to their friends, the arts and the community.

My Turn provides the opportunity to:
• Share and relate past experiences.
• Participate in age appropriate, as well as intergenerational activities.
• Participate in crafts and other activities that strive to maintain cognitive and emotional well-being.
• Learn about healthy lifestyles such as nutrition and exercise.
• Learn about physical and emotional changes and general aging issues.
• Experience community outings for educational purposes and to promote active lifestyles.

Tailored employment training for adults with disabilities.

A paying job is an enormous source of pride and personal independence. Our Employment Gateway program is part of a nationwide vocational rehabilitation network of services that helps adults with disabilities find full- or part-time work. An employment specialist helps pair the individual to a job that matches his or her skills and interests, then provides on-the-job training and support until the individual can perform the job independently.

Employers Benefit, Too
Meeting the needs of the Employers is one of our top priorities. Employers benefit by gaining dependable, hard-working, diverse employees who are trained with the assistance of an Employment Specialist – all at no cost to the Employer. The Employment Specialist works with the Employer to ensure the job is performed successfully from the beginning.

Exhibit and sales space with local and Enrichment Center artists’ work on display.

The Gateway Gallery at The Enrichment Center encompasses nearly 1,300 square feet of beautifully lit exhibit and sales space, featuring a variety of one-of-a-kind art pieces created by our students. These Artists of Gateway Gallery and Studios work in the tradition of self-taught and outsider artists, creating original paintings, digital photographs, ceramic and multi-media pieces. Individual styles range from traditional to abstract.

Community artists are invited to show their work in conjunction with original creations by our own artists, who receive commissions from their gallery sales. Exhibits change every two months, and an opening reception is held for each exhibition with music provided by The Enrichment Center Percussion Ensemble and refreshments prepared by our culinary arts class.
