The Center Community 

The Center serves as a community hub for a vibrant and diverse group of individuals. Their goals, hopes, skills, interests, definitions of success, and disabilities vary—as do their plans for independence. Currently, The Center community is made up of over 450 individuals, each with his or her own story.


Volunteering at The Center is more than an opportunity for service; it’s an invitation to join a community where you find inspiration in unexpected places. Whether you’re looking for a one-time experience or an ongoing commitment, there is a place for you at The Center.
