Community Exploration

Explore Opportunities For Personal Growth And Independence


Tangram is a leader in providing services that meet the unique needs and desires of the people we serve. The key to our success is our commitment to understanding our clients’ goals and finding a path forward. This model is the inspiration for our Community Exploration Program, a service that offers a way for our clients to explore opportunities for personal growth and independence in an integrated, community setting.

Let’s explore!

Tangram’s Community Exploration Program offers the following opportunities for those we serve to build connections in the community:

  • Interest groups like Self-Advocates and Gamers
  • Leisure activities like exploring local parks, historical sites, museums, art centers, and shopping centers
  • Entertainment activities like bowling, movies, and go-karting
  • Fitness activities like crossfit, walking clubs, and yoga
  • Social activities like game nights, parties, and group outings
  • Volunteering
