Wide Awakes

Wide Awakes was started in 1965 to provide social and recreational activities for adults with physical and developmental disabilities. The program provides a variety of social or recreational experiences once a month that may include bowling, pizza night, monthly club meetings and dances. Wide Awakes is professionally staffed but is self-governed with member-elected officers. Many adults with special needs can often feel isolated. Social interaction and activities are extremely important in helping the individual live a fulfilling life. The program is designed to replace any feeling of helplessness, isolation, and frustration with an enhanced sense of independence, confidence, and self-esteem.
