Every Day Is Unique………..

IMG_0026There is no typical day at the C.E.R.T.S. Adult Action Center.  Every day each participant gets a choice of what activities he or she will participate in.  They choose whether to do karaoke, go to the salon, cooking, art, bowling, music, pottery, etc.The C.E.R.T.S. Adult Action Center is a unique day program experience that provides meaningful engagement through activities, outings, and programs tailored for each individual.  Here are some photographs of some of the activities on this particular day at our New Castle County site.


Participants Visit Ronald McDonald House!

001Recently, two participants enjoyed traveling from our New 003Castle County site to the Ronald McDonald House in Wilmington. They had a nice visit and while there, donated many pop tops from soda cans for their recycling program.  We have been saving these pop tops for a long time and it felt good to do something nice for people in need!
