Day Sharing

Everyone should have the opportunity to make friends and enjoy spending time with them doing fun activities. Through the Day Sharing program, KenCrest matches people in our community with those we support for a mutually beneficial friendship. 

As a community-based approach, KenCrest’s Day Sharing pilot program aims connect the people we support by matching them up with other members of the community over common interests and build genuine friendships. Olivia Riordan, KenCrest’s Day Sharing Engagement Coordinator, recruits potential matches with the people we support based on shared hobbies, activities, passions, skills, and talents that they would enjoy doing with others.

daysharing-programLike Meaningful Day, KenCrest’s Day Sharing program provides opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to enjoy one-on-one or small group activities like creative arts, music, gaming, gardening, fellowshipping, cooking, fundraising events, and education.

Volunteering through the Day Sharing program is perfect for anyone―including recent retirees, empty nesters, college students, etc.― looking for a way to contribute to their community. Each volunteer receives a stipend to cover activity expenses associated with the program. All prospective Day Sharing volunteers, must complete criminal background check and participate in a few small trainings on the history of intellectual disabilities, setting boundaries, and learning from the first-person point of view of a person with disabilities.
