Palm Avenue Center
The Palm Avenue Center serves individuals whose service needs require less intensive staffing than those who attend the Whittaker Center. In an adult activity setting participants enjoy opportunities to pursue personal goals in the areas of Adult Basic Education, computer skills, health and wellness activities utilizing modern gym equipment, community awareness and access, and social skills. Some participants have the opportunity to engage in contract work to foster employment skills and earn a little money in the process. The facility also has a strong social and leisure component including music appreciation and karaoke, fan clubs for local sports teams, lunches at area restaurants, and recreational use of technology. Participants are given primary responsibility for determining areas of interest and choosing activities.
