What makes us unique?
The individuals that we serve often struggle to find a stimulating or comfortable environment in the traditional service model. Community Connections offers innovative services that provide unique and thematic opportunities and instruction. Our program is designed to positively impact all areas of development with a special focus on social skills and independence. We provide individuals with the tools and supports they need to truly define themselves as members of their community. This includes a variety of purposeful activities such as swimming, bowling, dance fit, art therapy, cooking, libraries, restaurants, volunteering and much more.
AGI’s Volunteerism at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium
In 2021, AGI began volunteering time at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium as part of a partnership that has been enriching the lives of everyone involved including the animals at the zoo. Recently, Zoo Docent Vallori Carolan sat down to talk about the impact the partnership has had.
Note: the photos of the animals with items made in Val’s shop do not include those we made but are very similar to those we had a hand in making.
