Adventure is not outside someone, it is within – David Grayson

Social Events

From our annual ADA Celebration Picnic, to art receptions and film events, you can connect with people who understand and share your desire for independence.

Classes and Workshops

DAC and other regional resources routinely offer classes and workshops on topics such as emergency preparedness, transitioning youth, dealing with autism and living with chronic conditions like Parkinson’s and chronic fatigue syndrome. 

ArtWalk

DAC participates in community ArtWalks by providing a venue for artists with disabilities. Anyone can apply to be a part of this annual reception and gallery.

Whether it’s fishing, sailing, hunting, riding in an ATV, or finding an accessible park, there is assistive technology to make it easier for you.
