Using a community support and integration approach, Morrison Center provides high-quality, flexible adult day programming full of positive life experiences and growth opportunities. The Center’s life skills curriculum stresses the goals of self-advocacy, independent living, and community integration in support of each consumer’s individualized Person-Centered Plan.
In our commitment to fostering independence and growth, as well as strengthening personal choice, Morrison Center offers several different activities throughout the week that encourage participants to make activity choices for themselves while learning new skills.

Letter from a Volunteer
After years of hearing praise of Morrison and attending a few of their events, where I witnessed great energy and a sense of community, I pursued volunteering there myself with my therapy dog. For the past year and a half, I have had the privilege of volunteering at the center at least once a month. I get to see first-hand, with the preschoolers, school-age children, and adults, the amazing work that is being done.
The nurses, teachers, specialists, volunteers who make the center function are improving the quality of life not only for their clients, but thereby, for everyone who interacts with each of their clients.
Each time my dog and I visit, I am walking into an environment where people of all ages have been dealt a somewhat unfortunate hand. Yet when I leave the center, I feel lightened by the positive things that are happening there.
Our community is a better place because of The Morrison Center. Thank you.
