One of the things we at NDSI take great pride in is our desire and ability to provide our individuals with a vast variety of opportunities to participate in recreational and community activities. Just because something was not possible before does not mean it is not possible now! We are constantly looking for new and exciting activities for our individuals to experience that they otherwise might be unable to do.
