I started The Centre in 1991 out of necessity. My son John had graduated from high school at the age of 21 and we needed something for him to become involved in. At the beginning, I serviced only 3 young adults - John and two of his friends. From there The Centre evolved and before I knew it, we had 17 individuals in the program, with 4 full time staff, 1 part time staff and numerous volunteers, as well as myself, volunteering full time. We pride ourselves in becoming extremely involved with this great community that we live in. We also pride ourselves in striving to make life more fulfilling for the individuals that attend our program and the lives that they touch. Our greatest claim to fame is starring in two great movies, both shown on the World of Disney channel. I encourage our individuals to try their best, work hard and always have fun doing it. I have shared many successes with our individuals and look forward to hundreds more!
