We offer a full spectrum of activities, trips, classes, special events, and fundraisers, as well as fitness and health care components, arts and education, and a nutrition program. We serve approximately 500 members, as well as many other drop-in participants who utilize the facility and our services.

Most of our programs operate Monday through Friday from 8:30AM to 3:30PM, but we also offer many day trips, overnight trips, and special events during evening and weekend hours.
