If You Can Imagine It, It is Possible…

By Miranda Keenan

Imagine Possibilities is a facility with progressive programs for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is place for friendship, education, and activities outside of the family environment, serving Washington County and surrounding areas.

Executive Director, Cathy Schaefer, states that she never feels like she is going to work. Her smile radiates her truth. Her late brother with a disability inspires her daily.

“People need an alternate to employment. We have programs for a wide range of needs for both children and adults. Recreational programs, summer camps, and volunteer opportunities to name a few. We also have a quiet house-like setting for one-on-one care. We make a difference. Everyday is an opportunity for possibilities,” states Schaefer.

Former board president, Mary Bennett’s son has attended since 1982. Last year, Imagine Possibilities, purchased technology for Jason, who is unable to speak and had no formal means of communication. By touching customized pictures, an iPad speaks for him. Schaefer explains that since getting the technology, “Jason has absolutely blossomed. He is doing things that at one time we only imagined he could do. We believe if you can imagine it, it is possible.”
