Turnstone Center for Children and Adults with Disabilities

Brief Description of Your Organization's Activities:: 

Turnstone Center for Children & Adults With Disabilities is committed to inclusion and diversity in its activities, programs, hiring practices, and volunteer utilization. The mission at Turnstone is to enhance the lives of people with physical disabilities and their families. To accomplish this, the focus at Turnstone is on education, advocacy and skill building so that people with disabilities can gain a greater self-sufficiency and functional independence that will support them to continue living in their community with dignity. 

Among people with physical disabilities are men and women of all races, religions, and ages. Thus Turnstone's clients are a diverse group and inclusivity is the ultimate goal for people with disabilities. Inclusivity means being treated with the same level of respect and having the same opportunities as anyone else. It means being able to participate in the worlds of work, recreation and worship without encountering environmental or societal barriers.

At Turnstone, people with physical disabilities are empowered to reach for their full potential in every aspect of life. Guided by the vision that one day all people will live, work, learn and play in a community based on abilities (not disabilities), Turnstone has become a leader in the provision of therapies (occupational, physical speech therapy and aquatic) as well as health and wellness, preschool and childcare and adult day services for people with disabilities. Turnstone provides these unique services at a reduced or no fee.
