About

Older adults with disabilities and younger adults who have age-related disabilities have the same need as anyone else for engagement in meaningful activities and the opportunity to make a contribution within their community. Are you willing to be a champion for these individuals? Are you seeking a bit of perspective on possible career options? Is your immediate community in need of diversification? If any of the above are applicable to you, consider becoming a Day Services Chaperone working alongside our MARI program.
