Day Services

Goodwill Day Service Programs support adults with developmental disabilities to have more independent and active lives
 
Experiencing good days with good friends since 1986! The Goodwill Day Services program supports adults with developmental disabilities to maintain independent and active lives in their community.  Goodwill operates three facility-based centers that develop and provide activities based on individual interests and needs. Our participants may choose recreational or social activities, music or arts, educational or volunteer opportunities and activities to strengthen and maintain physical health. We also offer a wide variety of community outings every month.  This personal, engaging approach provides a foundation of skills, self-confidence and independence to maintain happiness and health and prevent institutionalization.
