The Enrichment Center in Chicopee helps people who are living with a brain injury to become more functional and engaged with others.
How We Help
We recognize program participants for their unique talents, and encourage them to share their knowledge and experience with their peers.
Our goal is to provide a fulfilling experience for participants in their journey through rehabilitation and reintegration into the community.
We provide physical, occupational, and speech therapy as needed, and these services are overseen by licensed professionals.
Our social programming is flexible and dynamic, and participants choose from an array of activities at the centers as well as in their communities, including:
Crafts, board games, and Yoga
Music and dance sessions
Computer skills, games, and online research
Bowling, museums, and movie theater trips
Sporting events and restaurants
Equestrian and cycling therapy
We are affiliated with educational programs from local colleges and universities; including Westfield State University, Springfield College, Bay Path University, and Western New England University.
Through these schools and others, we offer several internship opportunities at the Enrichment Center in Chicopee, ranging from one-day shadowing experiences to full-time rotations. Our interns work with their assigned supervisor to learn the skills and responsibilities related to their specific area of focus. We offer structured observation, mentorship, and hands-on practice.
