Dreams of America assists developmentally disabled adults in building up their skills, talents and overall self-sufficiency. We are a proud vendor of Regional Center, a nonprofit organization that is committed to serving disabled families. We also cater to private students upon request. Please contact us for more information regarding tuition.
Due to a shortage of programs and adult daycare centers for disabled adults, many parents of adults with disabilities don’t have access to the resources they need to properly care for their children. To meet this need, we’ve created a supportive, educational place that bridges the gap between school and home. We offer exceptional services for adults with disabilities and provide hope to parents and real enrichment opportunities for their developmentally challenged adult children.
Our dream is to make our students’ dreams come true. We want to inspire them to become their best selves. Our mission, therefore, is to serve all students – regardless of their disabilities – and always with respect, dignity and a focus on bringing out their true potential.
Dreams of America grows the basic, yet vital skill sets that people need both at home and in the community at large. We help our students become more independent through volunteer work and instructive activities – such as art classes and mobility training – aiding important job skill development. Ultimately, our goal is to guide students toward the path of employment by supporting their skill acquisition.
We offer an array of activities, educational programs, and recreational services for disabled adults. Participants develop motor skills and learn useful lessons while out in the community, engaging in:
at places like local churches and food banks
through playing games and sports at local parks
at places in the community, like the Irvine Spectrum
such as bowling and miniature golf
These activities not only get students acclimated to society; they serve as vocational training, too. While volunteering and having fun, participants can become proficient in job-related abilities.
