Dearborn Specials/Arts & Recreation Enabling
A program for adults with disabilities
Since 1988, the Dearborn Recreation Department has sponsored the Dearborn Specials/Arts & Recreation Enabling program. Several sponsors have been supporting and assisting in creating additional programs since 2001. They include Dearborn Community Arts Council, VSAarts/Michigan-Dearborn, and Visteon. Our programs are structured for adults with disabilities, and their families and friends.
All activities will be hosted or instructed by Recreation Specialist Camille Gibson. Certain programs will be held at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center, and some activities will take place within the community. A caregiver must accompany participants who require one-on-one assistance. Registration is required for all activities. Registration/program fliers will be available in the main lobby of the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center. To be added to the current mailing list for updated program information, please call (313) 943-2350.
