ACT’s Day Services, with locations in Columbia and Centralia, are skill-based and recreational programs designed to cater to individualized goals and interests for adults in our communities who are seeking inclusion.

Activities are planned and designed around each participant’s goals and interests in a way that gives them access to the community on a daily basis and enables them to give back to others in need.

Day Services Activities

ACT offers both on-site activities and off-site community outings for all participating individuals on a daily basis.

Individuals in our Day Services provide their ideas, and our staff plan activities accordingly based on their goals and suggestions.

  • Cooking Clubs
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Computer Lab Time
  • Puzzles & Games
  • Dance Parties
  • Going to the Movies
  • Nature Walks

Benefits of Day Services

Day Services offers significant benefits for the participants as well as their families:

Individual Benefits

Socializing with other members within the community enables individuals participating in this program to feel valued and to feel like they belong to something bigger than themselves.

Family Benefits

With a strong management team and a Registered Nurse on staff at all times, family members feel confident knowing their loved ones are in a safe and secure place and are excited to see what they can achieve each day.

What Others Are Saying

  • Alternative Community Training (ACT) impacted Brian's life significantly. ACT has provided an option for Brian's daily need to orient himself within the community with those of similar disabilities. He has experienced many activities that has assisted him to understand the world environment. He has visited zoos, various retail stores, museums, aquariums, and many other experiences, which enhanced his vocabulary and general understanding of daily life. He has developed relationships that otherwise would not have occurred had he been isolated at home, or some other temporary place. He considers the adult supervisors as friends and shares his experiences with them. We truly appreciate the services provided for Brian without which his life would be mundane and routine.
