Active Re-Entry Independent Living programs (ARE)
Active Re-Entry is a community based program which assists individuals with disabilities to live more independently within their own home and community. Our program is committed to promoting the rights, dignity, and quality of life for all persons with disabilities. We are unique in that we provide services to individuals of all ages and all types of disabilities.
Some of the programs Active Re-Entry provides in the seven county area include: a program for individuals who are experiencing a loss of vision; assistance in obtaining assistive technology; scooter and wheelchair training; various support groups including- Active Access, Care Givers, Visually Impaired and Blind Support Group, and a Grief Support Group. For eighteen years, Active Re-Entry has coordinated and provided an annual Care Givers Conference. The Caregivers Conference and all of these support groups are open to the public.
Other programs include: activities for youth with disabilities, ADA Technical Assistance; a Nursing Home Transition program; Personal Disability Waiver program; community integration activities; Independent Living Skills training; and P.A.W.S., the animal assisted intervention program. PERKIE Travels, the coordinated transportation program providing rides to the Utah Valley area for radiation treatments, is another well-known program supported by United Way funds.
