The DCOP is a “without walls” program offered throughout the Capital/Saratoga Region, as well as Taconic and Hudson Valley, for adults 18 years and older. Individuals in the program participate in a wide variety of activities throughout the communities in which they live. These experiences include cultural and artistic pursuits, volunteer opportunities, recreational activities, and skill building classes. Skill building classes include, but are not limited to: art, computer instruction, cooking, money management, reading, travel training, and a variety of social skill building classes.
DCOP participants develop essential and practical life skills that promote independence through volunteerism, education, and enrichment activities. The DCOP has created an environment that fosters community inclusion, self-sufficiency, and self-advocacy for its participants.
