Life Skills - Day Program

We are a week-day program providing social development, fit and healthy living, community integration, and employment training. Client participation is integral in creating their own program activity schedule. This further supports the ICAN mission. We believe the above gives our clients the opportunity to enjoy meaningful experiences and encourages them to discover more of who they are and what they can do.
