We dream of a day when society recognizes the all adults of all abilities have purpose and value. Connecting Point of Park Cities provides an impactful day program for adults with disabilities by fostering independence through educational, social, recreational and vocational initiatives and connecting them to opportunities to volunteer.
In 2005, a mother’s son suffered a traumatic brain injury due to a ski accident at the age of seventeen.
Life would never be the same. At the local high school, she found the special services her son needed, which lasted until he turned 21. Her search for a similar exceptional day program became a challenge because there were few options.
This disappointing discovery inspired her to reach out to other concerned parents and professionals, and a board of directors was soon formed. Work began to create a local, quality, stimulating, all inclusive day program available for adults with disabilities. Having the goal to connect these adults with their community and with a variety of enriching opportunities, the name Connecting Point of Park Cities was chosen.
After years of planning and fundraising, the doors of Connecting Point opened on June 24, 2014.
