Day Programs at the Tolleson Family Activity Center

We offer a variety of classes to individuals who have a primary diagnosis of a physical, intellectual, or autism spectrum disorder. These classes are tailored for adults who are no longer in school and have a few hours each day or week that they would like to learn something new and socialize. Any participant that needs help with personal or nursing care would require an attendant to come to class with them. A completed application is required to enroll in a class.
