The mission of ASPIRE is to promote independence and expand opportunities for adults with disabilities through individualized goals, meaningful activities and community integration, and to promote enjoyment of the process. Trained, caring staff members assist each client in setting and reaching personal goals for independence. Among the benefits of ASPIRE are:
Our qualified staff serves approximately 50 individuals each weekday 8 a.m.-4 p.m. ASPIRE participants reside in an Easterseals Rehabilitation Center group home or are Medicaid Waiver clients served by our Community Living Services. ASPIRE serves only individuals who already receive other services in Easterseals Rehabilitation Center programs. Transportation is provided by the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center Transportation Department.
Some activities offered at the Aspire Day Program include:
The ASPIRE staff believes in giving individuals the opportunity to express interest in the activities in which they participate. A Volunteer Committee of 10 ASPIRE participants meets with the activity director on the first Thursday of each month to discuss the activity schedule for the upcoming month. The activity director utilizes committee members' ideas to develop the schedule, which is posted in the ASPIRE area and sent to the participants at home, as well as to parents and guardians.
