  • The Therapeutic Recreation Program

    The Therapeutic Recreation Program is for individuals, ages 8 and up, with physical and or mental disabilities whose recreational needs cannot be met by regular programs. The goals of the activities are to improve self-esteem, health, social skills, recreation skills, safety skills, and independence while having fun. Staff participant ratio is usually 1 to 8.

    Cooperative Effort/Funding

    The Charlottesville Recreation and Leisure Services has a cooperative partnership with Albemarle County Parks and Recreation Department and Region Ten Community Services in administering recreation for individuals with disabilities. Both agencies contribute annually to the City Therapeutic Recreation budget. The three agencies work closely with one another in providing comprehensive recreation activities. Participants in the program also contribute financially to the program through class fees and donations. Individuals and private organizations often make financial donations. Through cooperative efforts of many individuals and organizations the City is able to offer high quality therapeutic recreation to the Charlottesville Albemarle area. Thank you Albemarle County Parks and Recreation, Region Ten Community Services, Therapeutic Participants and the Public for continued support.
