Live Your Best and Most Productive Life!

 

SPARC provides essential day programs for adults with profound disabilities at five locations in Northern Virginia.  

SPARC offers the same supportive structure and continued education that its participants enjoyed in school and provides a variety of educational services in the form of leisure learning that allows participants to work on life skills while socializing with a community of peers.

The SPARC day is filled with activities that presume competence and appeal to each individual’s interests. We set the stage for learning skills and habits that improve life for our club participants and their families.

Through SPARC’s Advisory Council, comprised of SPARC participants, SPARC’s program continuously remains relevant to its’ participants’ needs.

Since SPARC’s population requires 24/7 care and support that is not available elsewhere in our community, SPARC allows employees to return to the workforce knowing their loved one is getting the human interaction they require to feel more a part of life and of community.
