The best of the special needs day centers in the area. They have lots of good programming and try hard to train their staff well. It is very expensive, so they cater to the wealthy people from the Plano area rather than to families who are less well-to-do. In addition to the fees for the day programming, there are lots of extras costs each time there is an off-site activity. They have a good art program and music program (but again can be expensive if you want to do the lessons). The work preparation program is OK, but not very flexible to meet the needs of different types of people, so many cannot benefit from it. They have really grown almost too fast, so there are times that there is insufficient supervision while they are so busy providing good programming that they forget about some of the basics. You really cannot do any better in this area despite the flaws in this program. Most programs in this area would not get a meets expectations rating.
These guys are providing a stellar education to the special needs community!
My Possibilities is a place where adults with intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to create friendships and lead a productive and interactive lifestyle in their community. The staff is friendly, respectful and supportive of each Hipster (Hugely Important Person). The opportunities for vocational and recreational activities are endless due to the caring and creative staff. The atmosphere is geared towards keeping the HIPsters safe and comfortable. The staff is very accessible and respond quickly to any HIPster or guardian concern.
MP is amazing and continues to grow and support our loving HIPsters.
My Possibilities is a day program providing adults with cognitive disabilities a rich curriculium of life skills, creative expression and job training. The leadership and staff are the very best in the metroplex. Each time I volunteer there, I leave with a smile and a joy beyond words.
My Possibilities is a great place for adults with special needs and it's also a really fun place to volunteer!
I found out about My Possibilities through a business connection. I work for a local engineering/manufacturing company that is highly active in the local community. About a year ago, we were looking for local organizations to partner with. After my first visit to MP, I was hooked!! There are not a lot of places where you experience total love and acceptance like there is at MP. The HIPsters (Highly Important People) are about the most joyful crew to be around. That day after my first visit, I left with a skip in my step and quickly relayed my experience to my company. Now, they are all hooked too! Since our first company volunteer day creating learning visuals, the number of employees signing up to participate at MP, has grown substantially. We now are on a monthly routine volunteering at MP. I cannot express enough how creative, amazing, and needed this program is to our community. Adults with special needs are often cast aside after they leave high school. This program keeps them active, learning, and growing in so many amazing ways! Such talent cannot be matched. Thank you MP for all that you do each day for the beloved HIPsters. What an honor it is to be apart of the MP journey!
I learned of MP through my employer when we visited for a volunteer event in 2014. Over the past 2 years I have witnessed the exponential growth of My Possibilities. The staff is committed to the relentless pursuit of the HIPsters (Hugely Important People) untapped potential. What is even more exciting is that My Possibilities is just getting started! I am excited for their plan to build a campus that will allow them to serve even more HIPsters as well as the surrounding community.
I am amazed at the love of and devotion to this program and the HIPsters, of the staff that I see each week. The environment here is safe, encouraging and fun. I see HIPsters of varying abilities, helping each other and reveling in their accomplishments. Large and Small. I feel privileged to be a part of the My Possibilities family and encourage others to add their support to this great organization.
