Making Room for Friendships
At LOGAN, we believe making friends is powerful therapy for adults and children with developmental disabilities—and vital to emotional and physical development. It’s why we put so much time into our social activities. Trained volunteers work with our staff to plan and execute a variety of age-appropriate outings that focus on fun and companionship for your loved one. We even have a unique program designed just for area college students to volunteer and create friendships to last a lifetime.
LOGAN Recreation Club
Since the 1970’s, the Recreation Club has sponsored fun social events for LOGAN clients. Bowling, dances and an annual camping trip are just a few of the wonderful opportunities we’ve created to build friendships between volunteers and each other that will last for years.
Social Connections is a great way to make new friends and hang out with your old ones. This group meets at LOGAN Center for a game and movie night. The cost includes pizza or subs and drinks. Participants are asked to bring a snack to share and are encouraged to bring games and movies to enjoy with your peers at LOGAN Center.
Monday Activity Nights
Each week, we meet at LOGAN Center for board games, crafts, socializing with peers, and movies. A snack will be provided at 7:00 p.m.
Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross students have been part of the LOGAN family for decades. The Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s chapter of Best Buddies matches people from LOGAN with students to create supportive and meaningful friendships. For information on volunteering with Best Buddies, click here. You can also visit the national Best Buddies website.
Ongoing and One-Time Recreation
We’ve created a full calendar of activities for young adults (age 18-26) and adults (age 26 and older) that provides structured social time as well as casual outings. Our activities are both indoor and outdoor, some are full of adventure, others take is slow. For a full list of current LOGAN social and recreational activities, see our online calendar for participation information.
Most of LOGAN’s social and recreational activities charge a small fee, however we never want financial worries to stop you from exploring all that we have to offer.
