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 programs support seniors and adults with developmental disabilities to maintain independent and active lives in their community.  Goodwill operates three centers that develop and provide activities based on individual interests and needs. Our participants may choose from a variety of opportunities to maintain life skills including recreational or social activities, music or arts appreciation, educational or volunteer opportunities and activities to strengthen and maintain physical health. We also offer a wide variety of community outings every month.  This personalized, engaging approach provides a foundation of skills, self-confidence and independence to maintain happiness and health and prevent institutionalization.
