PACE is a community-based day service that supports people who are of retirement age and people for whom working full-time is not yet their goal. Nonetheless, they want to remain active.

This service operates much like the employment supports. It begins with the person, their unique interests and talents, and their communities. We strive to connect people with their senior centers or other businesses doing activities that are of particular interest so that people are feeling fulfilled & productive. Ideally, people are being given the opportunity to meet other community members with whom they can share their common interests. Some activities that people have enjoyed are: tending a garden, playing pool, going to a horse show, taking a painting class, archery, and attending a cooking class.
