How We Help
The Enrichment Center in Chicopee is a day program that helps people with brain injuries to become more functional and engaged with others. Participants are recognized for their unique talents, and are encouraged to share their knowledge with their peers. Our goal is to provide a fulfilling experience for participants in their journey through rehabilitation and reintegration into the community.
Social programming is flexible and dynamic, and participants choose from an array of activities at the centers as well as in their communities. These include:
- Support groups
- Social events
- 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
Physical, occupational, and speech therapy are provided as needed, and are overseen by licensed professionals.
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.
