Welcome to the Young Adult Program Page! We have lots to offer and awesome opportunities for young adults (ages 18-30) with ANY disability!
Community Companions Social Group:
Looking to meet new people your age? This fun, social group starts in June 2017 for young adults ages 18-30! We meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month from 5:30 - 7:30 pm! The first Wednesday of every month we meet at the disAbility Resource Center and learn social skills interactively through fun games and activities in a comfortable setting. On the 3rd Wednesday of the month we meet in the community for events to apply the social skills we’ve learned! The event’s cost is covered by the disAbility Resource Center.
