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 developmentally disabled (IDD) to reach a place of independence and positive community involvement. We are able do this through our POP (Proclaiming Our Potential) program. Our POP participants consists of men and women with varying degrees of disabilities, from various backgrounds, and that represent a variety of races and cultures. We provide a safe and positive environment without discrimination for these young adults. 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 focused curriculum. Our POP participants have the opportunity for practical application of job skills by assisting with overseeing and running our small gift shop and our simulated janitorial business. Building each participant's life skill set is a priority for our team. 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.
