ADULT DAY PROGRAM
On December 23, 2003, we moved from a small office to our own facility in downtown Lake Wales. Our purpose was to provide programs for adults challenged by a disability. To create for them a place within the community that would grant them the opportunity to become independent and fulfill their dreams.
We immediately began the “Proclaiming our Potential” day program. Our goals were to continue their education through home living skills, simple office duties and the discovery and development of their own dreams and potential.
Our students have gone on to become employed, raise families and become a valued member of the community. All students show remarkable growth in social, academic and self esteem through our POP program. In addition, we encourage non-disabled peers of all ages to participate in all our programs bringing inclusion and acceptance for our adults with disabilities.
In the summer month of June a Summer Activities Director is hired to help provide summer fun outings, day camps and community projects.
Proclaiming our Potential highly promotes the well being of the special needs family. A part of our goals for this program is to provide the caregiver with respite and empower them to do all they can to promote that special person in their life so that the whole family may contribute to the overall health of their community.
