What We Offer

Community Engagement

Welcoming the Community

Chelsea and the surrounding communities offer many opportunities to engage with the residents on the St. Louis Center campus.

The Chelsea District Library visits weekly with their Virtual Reality equipment allowing residents the opportunity to experience this cutting edge technology.

Ballet Chelsea offers Move and Groove classes for older residents in the Day Program during the week. They also offer the class on Saturday afternoons for the Children's Program. Several residents go to Ballet Chelsea on Fridays for Adaptive Dance.

Studies have shown the great benefits of music. Residents of all ages are given the opportunity to play instruments during the weekly Music Therapy sessions offered in the main building on campus.

Service dog handlers have also been bringing their certified Therapy Dogs to St. Louis Center for campus visits. The impact these faithful friends have had on children and adults alike is priceless.

Kiwanis Clubs from the area made their mark on campus when they facilitated the charter of the St. Louis Center Aktion Club. This organization has led to leadership opportunities for the residents and a chance for them to give back to the communities that have been so generous to them. 

St. Louis Center also welcomes groups of community volunteers to engage with the residents by working with the Program Director, Rick Visel, to organize sports, arts & crafts, barbeques and other activities. For more information, please contact Rick Visel or call the Center.
