The state supported living centers (SSLC) provide round-the-clock residential treatment and training services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. SSLC volunteers are required to undergo a criminal background check and additional training.
Each SSLC has its own volunteer and internship program that provides opportunities and activities that help enhance residents' quality of life.
You can make a difference as an individual, with family, friends, coworkers or members of an organization. Volunteer for a one-day project or get involved for a longer period. It's up to you.
Volunteer opportunities include:
- Helping with holiday observations
- Improving the campus through landscaping, painting or interior decorating
- Helping with events, such as music festivals or dances
- Teaching art or music
- Helping with recreational activities
