Island Time Activities (ITA) members continues to grow, connecting teens and adults with intellectual disabilities to their community as engaged, empowered, equal participants in our shared culture and activities. Last year's highlights included our first First Friday Art Walk show, a sold-out performance of our original musical, "Alien Blossoms of Horror," hiking local trails on Tuesdays, meeting up for Afternoon Activities Club on Mondays and Wednesdays, exploring Kitsap and beyond during Friday Adventure Club, and adding live music to our weekly schedule thanks to professional musicians in our staff and volunteers. We are excited to be part of Kitsap County and its ever stronger culture of inclusion and equality.
Kitsap Great Give funding will help Island Time Activities further our mission: To empower people with intellectual disabilities, such as Down syndrome, Autism, Angelman syndrome, and Prader-Willi syndrome, to work toward their own goals in seven areas: Communication, Community, Continued Education, Health, Leisure, Relationships, and Work. ITA provides direct support both at our program's home base and in the community so our members can live rich, full lives as active residents of Kitsap County. ITA provides a number of social peer group programs such as Afternoon Activities Club, Hike & Swim Club, Book Club, Art Club, Drama Club, Job Skills Club, and Saturday Supper Club as well as one-on-one support, mentoring, and tutoring. While our members are attending ITA for direct support, their family members and other daily caregivers benefit from this respite time. Our entire county benefits from increased inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities in our shared public spaces and work places.
