ACE: Arts and Community Exploration
SHALOM Denver’s ACE: Arts and Community Exploration program is a people-centered interactive day program for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It focuses on the whole person, community involvement, and integration, with stimulating activities tailored to each participant’s needs and unique personality. The richness of different cultures is celebrated through crafts, foods, literature, history, and art.
Healthy lifestyles are encouraged through nutrition, yoga, and exercise. Passionate creative expression is learned through a variety of arts and craft activities. Open expression of feelings is encouraged, resulting in the development of healthy relationships. Participants explore the community at cultural and art centers, parks, libraries, shopping centers, and museums. They enjoy helping others by volunteering, recycling, and donating time and money to the community.
