Programs for Adults with Disabilities
Our Day Services Include a Variety of Programs:
RedBird Art Studio
RedBird Art Studio is a lively and unexpected place, an inviting art studio where artists of all abilities are encouraged to explore their creativity alongside others, where there are no mistakes, where artistic expression leads to self-discovery and, perhaps, to new friends. In RedBird Art Studio, artists discover unknown talents, gain income from their artwork, and grow in their independence.
- See our Events Calendar for information on RedBird art exhibits.
- If you are an artist who would like to share your art in a discussion/demo, call 574.371.1415 and ask about our visiting artist series, Oops, I Arted!
- RedBird is open to visitors; M-F, 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
- Art available for purchase. Commissions accepted.
Many individuals enjoy one-on-one time with a DSP in the community, once or twice each week. This gives them a chance to run errands, go shopping, workout at the Y, etc. What they do is their choice.
With an increasing number of individuals remaining in the family home after high school, there is a greater need for family caregivers to receive respite services. Living with a relative who has a disability is a fulfilling experience. At times it can also be tough without help. Cardinal’s Respite Services helps families meet this challenge by providing a qualified, well-trained Direct Support Professional to stay with their family member, assuring they are safe and well cared for. This allows people time to run errands, have lunch with a friend, or perhaps take a relaxing walk or be off by themselves.
On-Site Work Services
For those with the desire to work, we provide the opportunity for individuals to receive job skill training while earning an income doing assembly work for one of our local partner companies. Until each person has the chance to find a job in the community, he or she is given a chance to work in the manufacturing area at Cardinal Services, known as CCI.
On-Site Adult Classrooms
The classes allow consumers to spend the day with friends—people at a similar level of ability—in a classroom setting. Activities are planned and staffed by trained Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) in 15-30 minute increments and are coordinated to create a meaningful day for each person. If the person chooses, activities may include assembly work enabling the individual to earn a weekly check while remaining within the familiar surroundings of the classroom.
