At L.C. Dill Community Supports, we have fun while learning and growing together. In the relaxed yet structured environment of our community support program, adults with intellectual disabilities learn new skills, pursue their passions, and increase their connection to the community. Participants build skills that support independence including: reading, writing, and math cooking budgeting and shopping building healthy relationships health and fitness
All who attend the L.C. Dill program have access to a gym and are encouraged (though not required) to join our Special Olympics team, the River Hawks. In addition to physical fitness, we focus on personal growth and enrichment through exploring hobbies like sewing, painting, and music and through community activities. We host evening dances in the gym and coordinate day trips to local fairs, museums, shopping centers, and sporting events, as well as a therapeutic farm. Our flexible schedule makes it easier for participants to get out into the community. And we offer a $100 credit (*prorated for part-time attendance) to help full-time attendees pay for off-site activities.
At L.C. Dill, we succeed and thrive as members of a community. We partner with Meals on Wheels, a local nursing home, and other community organizations to offer volunteer opportunities. The people that we support love giving back to the community, and the community loves getting their help. During every activity, L.C. Dill staff work to ensure the safety of all the people we support by actively working with them to build positive relationships in a community supports program focused on their unique needs.
