Adult Programs

Adult programs – We are currently providing daily remote programming and alternate location services to keep participants and families engaged and connected. We have a variety of online programming that inspire socialization and fun. Not only are the programs fun for our participants, they help them overcome some of the isolation and feelings of anxiety that can result from the disruption of their daily routines.

Social Recreation programs encompass a variety of interests while offering a fun atmosphere for adults. Activities include typical weekend activities such as parties and dances, going out to dinner and a show, gardening, swimming and preparing to participate in the AbilityFirst annual fundraising events.

ExploreAbility is an adult day and community integration program. The goals of the ExploreAbility program are to help adults explore and identify what is important to them, to develop the skills necessary to achieve their goals and to be involved in their communities through volunteering and community activities. Individual support and small-group activities promote interaction and learning. The program is designed to help individuals access their communities in their daily lives, work, recreational and leisure activities. It incorporates volunteering, community activities, independent living and skill-building, using a small group model. ExploreAbility is currently offered at the AbilityFirst Joan and Harry A. Mier Center in Inglewood and the AbilityFirst Lawrence L. Frank Center in Pasadena. ExploreAbility is a licensed program.

PossAbility is intended for adults who want to enhance their skills and independence, and to participate in their communities. Individuals in the program are empowered to set and pursue personal goals with an emphasis on employment readiness and increased community connections, including volunteering. The program is offered in Pasadena and Los Angeles.

The PossAbility program is designed to help adults with developmental disabilities to:

  • Discover what is important to them; their interests, abilities and goals
  • Learn about what is important to them to achieve their goals
  • Become involved in their communities in their daily lives, work, volunteering and leisure activities
  • Make friends, increase skills and participate with others who share the same interests and goals
  • Enhance their skills in the areas of job readiness and employment, communication, socialization, independent living and healthy living skills

We always welcome your visits! Feel free to call and schedule an appointment to meet with a center director.
