About the Trellis Center

The Trellis Center was created by a group of concerned parents, and professionals, who recognized the need for a creative, innovative community-based program where adults with developmental disabilities can continue to learn, grow, have friends, and work toward independence. Just as typical adults, adults with developmental disabilities at The Trellis Center will continue to learn social, communication, leisure, recreation and employment skills. The Center will challenge each individual to acquire higher functioning skills, with clear objective of continually improving his or her quality of life.

Providing a varied program of activities, emphasis is on life-long learning of vocational, social, communication, recreation, and development of skills for independent living. The core elements of the program involve building vocational skills, connecting to nature and inclusion and contribution to our community members. Daily stimulation and personal connections foster a healthy lifestyle that helps sustain physical and mental health. We are open Monday through Friday year round excluding major Holidays. Participants must be at least eighteen years of age to attend the Trellis Program. If you or someone you know is interested in attending The Trellis Center please contact us.

Transition

The Trellis Center fills the transition gap for young adults with developmental disabilities who have graduated from high school but, still need a structured environment designed to match activities to individual capabilities. With a focus on agricultural activities, Trellis Center provides vocational skill development, stimulating activities, and a community of friends.

Nurturing

The Center emphasizes a nurturing environment, the development of the whole person and participation in the community. Our long – term vision is to serve many more participants, as awareness of our program reaches more interest from families of people with a developmental disability.
