The Ken Anderson Alliance PLAY Program offers weekday evening and weekend small group community outings for adults with developmental disabilities ages 22-50. There are 21 social and service outings offered each month and each participant can choose one outing per month. There are currently 195 participants. Social activities include dinners out, movies, sporting events, shopping, festivals, plays, concerts, museums, and much more.
The PLAY Program also offers its’ participants the opportunity to give back to their community. Service projects include assembling kids packs at the Free Store, helping to get items ready to ship to those who have experienced natural disasters at Matthew 25 and helping to bag tree seedlings to be given out at local elementary schools and libraries. PLAY participant Matt C. states, “I like to volunteer at the Free Store because it gives me the freedom to use my many talents to give back to the community and help others. It is also a lot of fun!”
The PLAY Program outings are very important to adults with developmental disabilities because in addition to being fun they lessen isolation, provide a greater comfort level in the community, and enhance both self-confidence and quality of life. With your help, we hope to expand this program in the future.
We create live, work, play opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities. When you give to Ken Anderson Alliance, you enable adults with disabilities to enjoy small group social outings, employment through social microenterprises, and a future residential neighborhood for adults with and without disabilities.
