Innovative Lifelong Learning

Providing a New Model of Self-Directed, Creative Opportunities to Broaden Potential and Reach New Goals

Seven Hills developed the ASPiRE! model in 2012, to better support individuals with disabilities and other significant life challenges. The model has restructured the way that day habilitation, workforce readiness, and employment services are typically offered by promoting personal choice and self-determination in a more dynamic and dignified, community-driven environment. Activities of choice include:

  • Workforce Readiness & Employment
  • Sports/Internet Café
  • Fiber/Textiles Studio
  • Ceramics Studio
  • Art Studio
  • Music Studio
  • Technology Center
  • Health and Wellness Center
  • Horticulture Studio
  • Radio Station
  • Multimedia Clubhouse

Community partnerships with local businesses, community organizations, Tufts Dental School, and MCPHS University will bring a wide array of specialists on-site to teach, learn, and socialize with participants. A fully operational Dental Center and Vision Center will be open to participants and the general public. All services are person-centered and promote community integration – helping each person optimize his or her personal, social, and vocational competency to live successfully in the community.


The goal of ASPiRE! is to provide opportunities for people with disabilities to develop skills necessary to pursue interests in employment, recreation, and social interaction to enrich lives, broaden core competencies, and enjoy a full range of activities while cultivating a network of relationships in and around their communities.
