OUR DAY SERVICE DESIGN
RISE Utah helps adults with developmental disabilities live full, productive, independent lives. We want the adults we serve to be able to work and live in a way that brings forth and celebrates their unique skills and desires. Through our Day Services, we discover and foster their personal passions with expert guidance within a supportive community.
Day Service programs also referred to as RISE Opportunity Centers have many purposes. Some of these include:
- Helping adults develop work skills
- Finding creative hobbies that they enjoy
- Helping them become involved in the community
Our Unique Approach
Everything we offer is individually tailored to the needs, skills, and personality of our clients.
We take the time to learn about each person we support and help them discover what skills they have and how they might fit into a job or at home. Then, we help the individual apply those skills to every aspect of their lives. This is done in a safe and supportive setting through cooking classes, exercise, music, crafts, and other job and life-skills training programs. New skills create new opportunities!
Creating opportunities for and with people is what we care about most. Adults do not need to be living in a RISE home to participate in any of our Day Services, and transportation can be arranged or provided. For further information, please contact us by calling (801) 373-1197.
