DAYS WITH PURPOSE


Everyone knows there’s no substitute for hard work, and we have a core focus on facilitating employment and volunteer opportunities as a gateway to independence and individual purpose for everyone who we support.



WE JUST DO IT A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT THAN EVERYONE ELSE


We have been providing premier services that promote quality of life, independence, and ability in Natrona County since 1999.  In 2018 the Ralph Ballard Academy was developed to further expand our mission.  Our mission is to provide high quality, innovative, individualized, therapeutic services to adults with developmental disabilities and brain injuries.

opportunities that make a difference

OUR PHILOSOPHY IS TO TAILOR A PROGRAM OF SUPPORT THAT ALLOWS EACH INDIVIDUAL WE SUPPORT TO REACH THEIR HIGHEST AND FULLEST POTENTIAL.

Community
Living:


We believe you have choices where and with whom to live. In this program you will have options such as group home living, living in privately rented residences by yourself, with a roommate or two, living in your own apartment, or receiving supports in your family home. This choice is yours!

Community
employment:


Work defines us and gives us a sense of purpose. In addition, work is the one sure vehicle to move out of poverty. If you are ready to go to work, we are ready to support you in that effort! Our nationally certified employment team will meet with you and your team to develop an employment plan and goals that truly reflect your desires.

Community
support:


Your opportunity to access your community on your terms is an essential component of our Community Integration program. The services delivered from the Ralph Ballard Academy is a "clubhouse model" in terms of providing a meeting place for people to gather and make choices about their day. This may include volunteering or other services.




volunteering:


Volunteering alongside a wide variety of people is one of the best means there is to naturally promote people getting to know each other, and bridges the gap from recognizing or acknowledging fellow community members to developing relationships and friendships with fellow community members. Staff and individuals work together to identify opportunities that fit with the individual’s interests, skills, and aspirations.

CREATIVE ARTS:


Do you want to learn to play a guitar? How about painting? What about jewelry making? These and many more activities are available in this program.
The studio at the Ralph Ballard Academy promotes a modern atmosphere with the proper equipment and supplies as well as instruction on many subjects. We also bring in guests to help with instruction and to enrich the program.

health & wellness:


We offer a variety of wellness activities designed to promote health and wellbeing. We have a yoga class offered twice weekly at the Academy as well as several off-site fitness activities. Again, our services are designed to be as individual as you are!
