R&R activities provide a safe place for participants to practice life skills in a safe, accepting environment. R&R is currently operating an Adult Social Club for participants aged 18 and older and a Youth Social Club for participants aged 9-17. Club members build friendships, have fun and practice leadership skills. Members are encouraged to take ownership of their Club by discussing and voting on what they would like to do together as a group. This fosters a feeling of belonging and investment in group goals.

Club activities promote healthy relationships, build confidence and provide social-skill building opportunities. Recent activities include:

  • An afternoon at Strikes & Spares
  • Hayride and campfire at Bendix Woods
  • Friendsgiving Feast
  • Collecting items for care kits to distribute to people living on the street

R&R’s trained Behavior Therapists oversee all club programs while interacting with participants. This helps each client gain valuable social skills, reach personal goals, build positive peer relationships, and move toward greater independence. Set boundaries facilitate spontaneity and set the stage for “heart-to-heart” group time within a safe, confidential environment. Sufficient time is allowed to process any feelings or disclosures that may result.

We invite you to join us at our next Club meeting!  For more information about Social Club activities and mentoring opportunities, please contact or (574) 288-0494.

Social Club Supports
Person-Centered Goals

All of R&R services are based upon a person-centered philosophy to support the good life objectives of each individual. While individual goals may differ, every person has a fundamental need to be heard, respected and to participate in community.  Social Club helps meet these essential needs.
