Our Programs

All C-HOPE programs are component parts of our STRIVE for Social Inclusion initiative. Are 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 provided 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 College Campus.

Although the registration deadline has passed for the Spring 2022 program, we occasionally accept new participants mid-semester. For information contact Amanda Muldoon, Program Director, at amuldoon@c-hopewny.org.

Networks

Using today’s technology to communicate!

Networks introduces participants to new ideas and technology in a hands-on, dynamic environment. Participants create their own website, choosing the topic, content, and graphics. Accompanying the website building is instruction on cybersafety and social media savvy.

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.
