EMPOWER Adult Wellness + Recreation

Adult recreation opportunities for social interaction and skill building

The EMPOWER Adult and Recreation program nurtures social connections for individuals living with intellectual and developmental disabilities through recreation and wellness. This is achieved through participation in arts and crafts, music and movement, nutrition and cooking activities, outdoor sports and games, community field trips, nature walks and community service learning opportunities.

Our engaging EMPOWER programs assist individuals living with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (including cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, developmental delays and autism) live their best life!

As a “home away from home”, our EMPOWER team serves as an advocate, support and resource for program participants and their families. Our fully-trained and dedicated team members engage participants in life-changing skill building activities that enhance overall wellness and independence. We create an interactive environment by taking participants on field trips, providing volunteer opportunities and other social and recreational community interactions. Our well-rounded program also promotes health and wellness through fun exercises, movement and nutrition education.

Our EMPOWER Adult Wellness and Recreation program is available to adults living with intellectual and developmental disabilities at the following locations in North Carolina: Ahoskie, Elizabeth City, Morehead City, New Bern and Wilmington. The program is available Monday through Friday.

We have partnered with Trillium Health Resources to bring the EMPOWER program to life.
