INCLUSION IN ACTION
Frazer Center fosters inclusive communities where children and adults, with and without disabilities, gather, learn, and flourish. Our early childhood education program includes children with disabilities, and more than 80 adults with developmental disabilities receive supported employment, job training, meaningful community experiences, and live their best lives. Frazer has a long-standing history of providing exceptional services to infants, preschoolers, and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities including cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and autism spectrum disorders. Since 1949, thousands of children and adults have grown to live their best lives with therapeutic, educational, and vocational services.
YOUR INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY
Adult participants range in age from 22 to 70 years old, some of whom have been coming to Frazer for over 25 years, and several of whom attended our Child Development Program. The adults work with staff, family, and caregivers to discover their gifts, talents, and interests, and then explore and secure jobs and meaningful volunteer work, to participate in and become valuable contributors to the community. With our support, local businesses, such as The Home Depot, Salon Red, Kroger, Publix, and more employ many of our adult participants with developmental disabilities.
CHILD DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
200 children, 20% of whom have special needs or are at risk learn together in our Child Development Program. From infants to pre-K, Frazer kids enjoy a supportive and stimulating environment. Kids with special needs and typically developing kids learn from each other—mastering motor skills, learning empathy and leadership, and finding out that kids and adults with different abilities are a regular, welcome part of life.
The Frazer Center is part of the SunTrust Financial Wellness Challenge.
