Community Life Engagement

The Horizons Unlimited Community Life Engagement (CLE) program was founded in 2009. CLE is a 100% community integrated program that provides opportunities for participants to become a part of their community and form relationships with community members.

A wide variety of leisure, recreational, and volunteer activities are available to provide meaningful community inclusion experiences for those involved. The overarching goal is to help each individual develop and strengthen skills in the areas of social skills, communication, community inclusion, personal health, independent living skills, and emotional expression.

Some places that CLE participants can volunteer at include the following:

Horizons Unlimited CLE participants also take part in other community activities such as water aerobics at the wellness center, visiting nature centers, going to the library, visiting art galleries, and attending community events.  In the summer months you can find CLE participants outside playing softball, walking trails, and fishing.  All CLE activities are planned according to participants’ likes and interests.

Community Life Engagement operates Monday through Friday from 8:30-11:30 am and from 12:00-3:00 pm. The current CLE Coordinator is Kristen Elbert, who can be reached at the Horizons Unlimited Office between the hours of 8:00-4:00 pm. Please call Kristen at (712) 852-2211 ext. 118 if you have any questions.
