CI Community Center

IMG_8788

CI Community Center, the newest of the Columbia Industries’ family of services, is a safe, creative, and supervised place for people with disabilities to find social connection, life enrichment, and community integration.

Social Connection

Everyone wants friends, activities, and to be a part of something larger than themselves. Yet some people with disabilities have limited opportunities to make social connections because they are limited in their ability to live autonomously. CI Community Center offers a safe place to socialize as well as build fun and sought-after relationships with peers.

Life Enrichment

Most people have access to continuing education, but people with disabilities often stop pursuing education once they graduate from high school. CI Community Center is a place for life-long education—a place to take interesting classes, keep minds active, and get excited about education again.
