Adults Living Large

Adults Living Large is an adult day program designed to meet the needs of young adults with disabilities 18 years and older that no longer serviced through the school district. This program provides year-round social and recreational activities to enhance the quality of life of our participants. The program focuses on positive peer interaction, community integration, leisure independence, and basic life skills. Weekly activities include field trips in the community, cooking, shopping, arts & crafts, games, service projects, and much more!

New participants are always welcome! Families can tour and observe the program by appointment. For more information or to schedule a tour, please contact Ashlee O’Hern at 815-407-1819 ext. 211 or email at aohern@nwcsra.org.

Due to COVID-19, there is limited space available at each site and we are unable to use the agency vehicles before, during, or after program at this time. The information provided below is a brief overview of our Adult Day Program as it currently stands and will be updated as new guidelines are in place. We appreciate your patience and understanding in advance during this unique time!
