Providing Self-Directed, Creative Opportunities to Broaden Potential and Reach New Goals
Seven Hills developed the ASPiRE! model of day programs to better support individuals with disabilities and other significant life challenges. ASPiRE! has restructured the way that day habilitation, adult day health, workforce readiness, and employment services are typically offered by promoting personal choice and self-determination in a dynamic, and dignified, community-driven environment. Activities of choice can include:
- Workforce Readiness & Employment
- Sports/Internet Café
- Fiber/Textiles Studio
- Ceramics Studio
- Art Studio
- Music Studio
- Technology Center
- Health and Wellness Center
- Horticulture Studio
- ASPiRE! Internet Radio Station
- Multimedia Clubhouse
Community partnerships with local businesses, community organizations, volunteers and students bring a wide array of specialists on-site to teach, learn, and socialize with participants. A fully operational Dental Center and Vision Center are 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 their community.
The Seven Hills ASPiRE! Academy is a full-time, out-of-district placement option for high school students, aged 16-22, with special needs that cannot be met in the local public school system. This program offers students a dynamic alternative environment that integrates academic fulfillment with activities of adult transition. Learn More >
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.
