Our Programs

All C-HOPE programs are component parts of our STRIVE for Social Inclusion initiative. Our programs are varied, but all include elements of socialization and recreation, wellness, and adaptive and social skill development.

The Afternoon Club

Develop skills while building relationships!

The Afternoon Club is a social program that offers a little bit of everything: social skills workshops, functional math activities, team building, opportunities to develop adaptive skills, vocational skills training, and wellness activities. The Afternoon Club is C-HOPE’s flagship program.

This program provides 1:1 participant-volunteer support so we can meet the needs of participants with a wide range of abilities. C-HOPE proudly partners with local colleges and universities to recruit student volunteers studying healthcare professions.

Community engagement is critical to C-HOPE’s vision. The Afternoon Club schedule includes community events such as outdoor markets, craft shows, business outreach events, and service projects.

This program is held at the HUB on the D’Youville University campus.
