The Inclusion Center provides an environment where people have an opportunity to shine regardless of their ability or disability. Our goal is to create an atmosphere of acceptance so that individuals with special needs acquire the confidence and skills to exercise their option to access mainstream programs and services. A component of our service is to include and educate people without disabilities so they may gain the benefit of knowing how to interact with their peers regardless of functioning level.
We offer homework assistance, recreation, and other developmental activities in an asset-rich, safe, and accessible environment for children and teens. Our preschool age parent-child playgroups (in 5 locations) are great place for children to socialize and attain developmental benchmarks. In addition to on-site programming, the Inclusion Center serves as a resource for people with special needs to access city-wide programs.
*We are closed during some holidays. Please contact the Inclusion Center for details.
The Inclusion Center is self sustaining through the support of Oakland Fund for Children and Youth and contracts for services.
