What is the HIVE??
The HIVE uses a different model and different way of thinking than most of us are used to, and we like it that way! We are a learning and community-connecting club for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities and autism spectrum. Unlike an adult daycare, you can use Community Living Support hours at the HIVE to work on individual goals in a safe, fun, interactive environment that is conducive to learning and values your unique gifts and abilities.

  • a purpose and has something to contribute;

  • the right to make informed choices for themselves and options to choose from;
  • the right to a fulfilling life.

It's  YOUR life.

YOU get to design it.

We are just here to help you do it.
