About Spark! Community Center’s Mission

Spark! Community Center’s mission is to provide a welcoming place where the lives of all people 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 personal potential.

Overview & Vision

Our vision is to create a safe and welcoming place where adults with special needs, their families and caregivers, and caring members of the Upper Valley community can come together and take part in fun and educational activities. We know that transportation is often a challenge for people with disabilities. Many of them only get one chance in the day to get a ride from friends or family and they have to make it count. This means that instead of accessing multiple activities in the community, they often can only make it to one.

Well No More! Spark! Community Center aims to solve this issue by offering a variety of on-site amenities. If you cash in that one ride to get to Spark!, you won’t be disappointed. Tired of sitting around at home? Then come to Spark! to play a board game or watch a movie with friends. But be prepared to have your interest “sparked” by some of our awesome classes and programs!
