About Avis’s Place
Avis’s Place is a service for people with intellectual disabilities; where they can come and socialize with peers in a safe environment.
The Center offers social, recreational, educational opportunities for Community Living Disability Services Participants. Avis’s Place also offers pre- employment skill development, job training, and community engagement to support greater independence and participation in the community.
Avis’s Place is a safe place where participants can feel valued and engage with their peers in social, recreational and educational activities.
Our main objective is to increase involvement in the community and decrease isolation and to increase participation development in community events and activities. We want to help facilitate greater opportunities to obtain life and pre-employment skill development, volunteer or work experience.
We assist in developing strong social and communication networks and strive to enhance independent living skills, social development, including problem solving, decision making and working towards fulfillment of personal goals.
