Day Services – Giving back to the community
Giving back to a community that gives to us
Participants in TARC’s Day Services program have the ability to choose to participate in a variety of activities to help them gain skills, confidence and their independence. Every week, we offer the opportunity for those in Day Services to volunteer in the community at Helping Hands Humane Society, the Topeka Zoo and with Meals on Wheels.
In 2016, TARC’s Day Services participants volunteers thousands of hours in our community.
Benefits of volunteering include:
- Increased social interaction that helps build a support system
- Sense of purpose and fulfillment
- Physical and mental activity
- Reduced stress levels and increased happiness
