Island Time Activities
of Matching Funds Remaining
Island Time Activities (ITA) empowers people with intellectual disabilities (learning disabilities, autism, downs syndrome, etc.) to lead lives of meaning and self-determination, by providing opportunities, social activities, and guidance to build relationships, self-esteem, and life skills.
The generous donations we receive from this year’s pool will help us continue and expand meaningful fun and learning activities for Kitsap County residents with intellectual disabilities. This year we are starting a new program for our members to provide concessions and homemade healthy snacks at the concerts and movies in the park. Also, we are going to reopen the beloved Snack Shack at Fay Bainbridge Park. ITA programs like these offer our members opportunities to develop skills and experiences that empower them to participate in community events, learn work practices, provide a community service, and interact socially. This ultimately produces a stronger, more inclusive community. Since leaving high school, several of our members had never been out of the house – to a park or museum or store – without their family or caregiver. ITA gives them this chance. We believe it is important to raise awareness of our members as full human beings whose integrated presence in our employment and public spaces is a benefit to the entire community. We thank you for your generous support and look forward to seeing you in the parks this summer!
