We fully embrace the opportunity to help adults with special needs to live healthy, fulfilling lives. Through our programs and services, we hope to fill the gap in services available in our community by helping adults with special needs to gain the benefits of physical exercise, learn skills that contribute to successful employment, enjoy social opportunities and experience a sense of camaraderie.

  • SNAP Fitness (Ages 15 years and above)

    An exercise program designed for special needs individuals, 15 years and older, this class is held in a group setting and focuses on strength, cardio, balance, and flexibility. Class size is limited to 12 participants.

    These programs have been approved by the Division of Developmental Disabilities and are eligible to support participants in the Real Life Choice and Self-Directed Day Services Program. These services will only cover days of actual participation.  For example, if the session is 10 weeks in length and 2 weeks are missed, the participant will be responsible for covering the costs of the missed days.  A bill will be sent for the balances due.

    Classes are 1 hour long.
