INCLUSION CENTER


Inclusion Center is a free drop in, activity center by and for all people with disabilities, medical concerns and interested community members.  We are presently meeting on line through Zoom.


At Inclusion Center we decide what activities to pursue and then we make it all happen- while also sorting out how to make each activity accessible for all.

COVID TIME

During this extraordinary time

Think about others at I.C. 

Check in with them. Not everyone is fine. 

All of us are lonely, bored, scared, confused, and more. 

Some are feeling these more often or deeply than others.

 Make the calls, check in through email or facebook. 

Connect socially! 

It's physical distancing that matters now, not social distancing.


ZOOM ETIQUETTE FOR I.C.

Please be quiet when joining our Zoom Room. Chances are a conversation or activity will be in progress when you join the session. Come in, watch, listen and then jump into whatever is happening.

The zoom room opens at 10:30 for chatting and catching up.
Our activities begin at 11:00 and end promptly at 12:30 on Mondays and Fridays, and 12:00 on Tuesdays. However, 
we now leave the zoom room open after scheduled activities have ended. The room is open until 2:00 for talking. There is no facilitator from the end of activities on.

At each zoom session, as with all i.c. sessions, 
one person speaks at a time, and each person speaks.
Be aware of others, speak- then pause, this gives other people space to speak.

Leaving your camera on is preferable as it is more 
comfortable for the group.
If you have wifi issues, you are welcome to call in 
and join us on zoom through your phone.

As always, we’d like your input on all things I.c.

Inclusion Center is only as good as those who show up,  
speak up and help with ideas and input.
We need each person who attends to have an idea or two of activities to share with the group. Without ideas, we have nothing!

Thanks for joining us. We’re so very happy to have you with us!




Inclusion Center,  free, all volunteer, and all are welcome.

that is necessary!
