Meaningful Day Services

Kent Center’s Meaningful Day Services give the people we support the opportunity to plan and execute activities and events that bring meaning to their lives and contribute to the world around them.  From building social connections to developing new skills the people engaged in Meaningful Day Services challenge themselves to find success by charting the course of their own journey.

The staff at Kent Center have the privilege of walking pieces of this journey with the people we support and cheering them on as they realize their dreams.

People have chosen to engage in the following, and many more:

  • Job search activities
  • Religious engagement 
  • Volunteering for beach clean-up
  • Creating a team for the local bowling league
  • Produce a monthly newsletter
  • Yoga
  • Plan and produce a talent show
  • Planting a flower and vegetable garden
  • Trying new recipes, making snacks for their peers

Transportation is available for Day Services which operate Monday to Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. There is no “One Size Fits All,” everyone has unique interests and goals and is supported to build a calendar and develop a routine that ultimately creates a meaningful life for them.

Almost all direct support for people with developmental disabilities is provided at no cost to them or their families. Contact us to learn more.
