Welcome to our Circle!
It is our belief that every person should be treated with respect and not robbed of dignity, regardless of disability. We believe that all people are born with certain gifts and talents that should be developed and shared! Our goal is to empower and equip young adults who are intellectually and/or developmentally disabled (IDD). Each student is mentored and taught skills that allow him/her to reach a place of independence. Our students are encouraged to engage in positive community involvement. Our students are able to reach independent goals through our POP (Proclaiming Our Potential) day program. Our POP participants consist of men and women with varying degrees of disabilities, from various backgrounds, and who represent a variety of races and cultures. We provide a safe and positive environment for these individuals without discrimination or predertimination of ability. Our POP program provides the ability for our participants to connect with their peers, voice concerns and opinions, participate in their community, explore different cultures, continue with education, build social and life application skills, participate in therapeutic arts, fine arts, and train for employment through practical application and releavant curriculum. Our POP participants have the opportunity for practical application of job skills by participating in various P.O.P. simulated businesses. Our POP participants are encouraged to be a meaningful part of their community. We promote good community relations by collaborating with other businesses, charities, and churches to participate in outreach, events, fund raising, and job training.
