Going beyond the traditional day habilitation setting, the ASPIRE (Assisting and Supporting People in Reaching Employment) program allows people to learn about different opportunities in the community through experiencing them firsthand.
People in the ASPIRE program enjoy volunteering at businesses and organizations around the area. Learning the importance of daily routines, time management, organization, teamwork, communication skills and community independence are key components to this pre-vocational program. People's preferences and interests are considered in the development of their volunteer service.
For more information on the ASPIRE Program or if you would like volunteers to help out your organization, please contact:
