Our programs include:
Adult Day Program
Our adult day program provide an opportunity for adults with disabilities to be involved in the community through volunteering. The volunteers in our organization are provided with transportation to and from the volunteer sites, which are local non-profits organizations in the Toledo area. The day program was created so that our clients can find active and defined roles within the community, while being able to engage socially, learn new skills, and assist others.
Our vocational habilitation program helps participants acquire skills that are built around their capabilities. Participants can then take the skills that they have learned and transition them into job skills that they can utilize. Common activities in the vocational habilitation program include volunteering in programs such as Project Pizza and Share Our Ground.
After School Program
Aspiring Hands, Inc. began an after school program in March of 2013. While talking with the parents of our team members, we found a common theme – at the end of the school day, Students with Capabilities, didn’t not have the opportunity to socialize or be involved in after school programs. Instead the students went home. This lack of opportunity has hindered the students ability to establish friends and develop social skills. The focus of the program is to assist with social development/interactions, physical fitness, and life skill development. Each afternoon, students arrive at the program and will have the opportunity to build friendships, cook meals, and be involved in physical activity. The program is located at Boulevard Church of Christ, 7041 W Sylvania Ave, Sylvania, OH 43560, across the street from Tam-o-Shanter. It runs form 2:30 PM – 6:00 PM.
Aspiring Hands, Inc. provides non-medical transportation to and from our day program.
This program provides clients with the opportunity to participate in events in the community; have social interaction with peers and to have fun while being part of a safe environment. A few common activities in the recreational outings program include bowling, miniature golf, going to the movies and taking hikes.
