Community Involvement Programs (CIP) offers a broad scope of programs that help the people we serve live their greatest lives. Our services promote wellness, safety and recovery for people who have severe, persistent mental health issues and/or intellectual disabilities. One of the programs is the Music, Art, Recreation, Inclusion (MARI) program. The goal of the MARI program is to provide a welcoming environment where adults with disabilities who no longer work can feel safe and respected, while still having fun!
Description : CIP embraces the philosophy that the best way for people with disabilities to have meaningful lives is to participate in and contribute to the communities in which they live. Our people services and community supports are always expanding and growing, therefore, in order to better serve our community we are seeking volunteers to assist our participants over the lunch hour. Tasks will include:
- Creating a positive, uplifting atmosphere with our participants
- Engage in fun and light conversation
- Aid in lunch and activities around the lunch hour
Commitment and Location: An ongoing activity offered at our office branch on 1701 American Blvd. East, Suite 19, Bloomington, MN 55425. The lunch hour is between 11:15 - 12:45 pm while the amount of days per week is solely up to the volunteers and their availability.
