Adult Day Services
Fun-Fit ….. committed to person-centered activities, enhancing community access and integration and building lasting meaningful community partnerships .
“We have a partnership with Choices to provide healthy living for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities. We provide complete access to Fun-Fit participants, right alongside our other community members. You can see the compassion of the Choices staff and how much they love what they do. Staff and members have grown to love each other. This has become the place they know and where they say that this is their home away from home.” – Cindy Edwards, Senior Membership Director, the Y at the Heights
“Not only has this program made exercising fun, it has been absolutely instrumental in keeping Krista’s weight down so she doesn’t progress into diabetes. An extra added benefit is that they are in the community and have made many friends.” – Karme J. Raggio, Parent
