Since 1983, the Recreation Council of Greater St. Louis has provided individuals with developmental disabilities an opportunity to have fun, be active, socialize and enhance their quality of life. They connect individuals with more recreation activities and programs than any other agency in greater St. Louis. Their dedication to social connectivity through personal approach helps them direct individuals to their true interests.
A message from the Recreation Council Executive Director, Susan Fleming:
The Recreation Council of Greater St. Louis is excited to announce the intent to purchase a limited number of tablets and data plans for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities who reside in St. Louis City, St. Louis County or St. Charles County, Missouri. Participants who qualify must lack this technology, indicate financial need and a desire to engage in recreational online programming and socialization opportunities during these trying times.
