Kaleidoscope Community Adult Program

Kaleidoscope is a Community Adult Program with two locations in Northern California (Dublin and Walnut Creek) that offers specific programming for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. These services help adults integrate into the community and include employment readiness and development, independent living skills, community inclusion, socialization and many other beneficial activities.

Program Components

Life Skills Coaches and Interest-Based Programming

Participants work with Life Skills Coaches who help them pursue interests by helping them define their goals and become as independent as possible. Interest-based programming offered at Kaleidoscope includes:

  • Community Access
  • Recreation & Leisure
  • Physical Fitness
  • Pre-Employment
  • Volunteering
  • Life Skills

Employment Planning

For many participants in our program, finding a job is a critical first step toward self-determination and financial independence. Through Kaleidoscope’s employment planning services, coaches help participants with:

  • Career exploration and development
  • Employment opportunities within their communities
  • Skills, education and training needed to meet employment goals

What are the Goals of the Kaleidoscope Community Adult Program?

The program aims to increase participants’ ability to care for themselves, self-advocacy and quality of life for themselves and their families. Additionally, Kaleidoscope helps adults reach their employment goals, gain greater integration into their community and achieve more independence in their lives.
