We believe in an integrated society where everyone is valued for their abilities rather than their disabilities. Our core philosophy is that everyone has a hidden talent or gift worth sharing with the world, a “spark” if you will. Spark welcomes all community members to take part in a variety of programs, classes and events as well as use the many different opportunities available at Spark!
Spark!’s MISSION is to provide a welcoming place where the lives of all persons of differing abilities are enriched through a sense of community.
Our VISION is to be a vibrant center that embraces a diverse, integrated community where all participants are inspired to realize their fullest potential.
Our PURPOSE is to serve as a drop-in community center where individuals with special needs can feel welcome at all times and find social and educational programming that focuses on independence, encouraging participants to lead happy and fulfilling lives within the Upper Valley. Volunteer and mentoring opportunities at Spark! allow members of the entire community to engage with a diverse group of individuals.
