Our adult program serves individuals with complex disabilities including medical frailties and Autism Spectrum Disorders who are over the age of 21. This program is designed to accommodate varying levels of independence, and emphasizes personal progression, individual preferences, and community participation through a range of enriching and therapeutic experiences.
Professional opportunities include working in businesses on Main Street; creating pottery, fiber arts, and other artisanal crafts; and contributing to The Center’s organic farming and community supported agriculture programs in a variety of ways. Activities such as outdoor recreation, swimming, exercise classes, choir, concerts and sporting events, and enrichment classes at the local college are just some of the many opportunities for personal growth and well being.
The Center is working to advance more innovative residential models, with appreciation for the ways in which architecture can be designed to foster both independence and a deeper connection to others. This is evident in the revitalized hamlet of Hurleyville, New York, which is becoming a nationally renowned model for inclusive and sustainable living.
