The Portage County location is our first location, housing the entire program and administrative offices in 6,000 sq. ft. of usable space. We have a large area in the back utilized as a multi-purpose gym, with a small basketball court and hoop for shooting around, along with an area for singing or karaoke, and even some bikes that can be ridden indoors when the weather isn't cooperating.
With a bus stop for the Stevens Point Transit conveniently located right outside the building, we are allowed to work with members on how to use the city bus. Members also get to enjoy area attractions such as the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point, the Portage County Public Library, the numerous parks in the community, and more.
We also have in the programming a volunteer opportunity, maintaining a regular route with Meals on Wheels in Portage County. This allows the members to participate in the community and assist a population unable to get out for balanced meals.
Some other key features include:
- Large craft room with a supply closet allows for plenty of inspiration!
- Access to video games for some mental stimulation and hand-eye coordination work.
- A nice Living Room for watching movies and shows with friends.
- A small coffee room where we have a weekly "coffee clutch" is great for snacking and social time with friends.
