Out & About With . . . Calvary Bible Church

Imagine!’s Out & About department was created in 1997 in response to the requests of community members with disabilities and family members who care for those with disabilities to have more options for community-based recreation services.

That “community-based” element is key - rather than scheduling activities in a segregated setting, you will find Out & About participants (both adults and children) utilizing recreation centers, bowling alleys, movie theaters, museums, and even amusement parks.

Of course, Out & About wouldn’t be able to provide those services without the support of the many, many community organizations that collaborate with Out & About to ensure that participants are able to receive positive instruction, within a therapeutic framework, to encourage growth, learning, community participation, socialization, health, safety, and the achievement of individual goals.

Today, I’d like to acknowledge Calvary Bible Church for its support of Out & About. Calvary Bible Church has been a staple in the success of Out & About for many years. Out & About’s Summer Camp has utilized Calvary Bible Church for the past eight years as a base site where they have been able to use one for their classrooms as a place for pick-ups and drop-offs for the kids and a place of play for an hour in the morning and afternoon all through the summer. O & A has also been able to use Calvary Bible Church for its adult programs, including the always popular “Kitchen Fun” class.

Thank you, Calvary Bible Church, for your support of your community and all of its members.
