Therapeutic Recreation

The intent of Therapeutic Recreation (TR) is to enrich the lives of individuals with disabilities, whether physical or intellectual. At CRPA our TR programs are designed to increase independence and improve quality of life through recreation and leisure for anyone with special needs.

We also encourage you and your family to participate not only in our TR programming but also everything CRPA has to offer as our programs are designed for all ages and abilities.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED How would you like to volunteer your time for Leisure Spectrum and hang out with a great group of young adults with special needs? Please contact Jen Fischer at 770‐924‐7768 or jlfischer@cherokeega.com.
