2016 Annual Report
  • Social Recreational Programs

    Community Mental Health of Ottawa County (CMHOC) is pleased to announce the launch of four new social and recreational programs for adults with disabilities who live in Ottawa County. Social and recreational activities help to enhance an individual's health and well-being and play an important role in bringing meaning to one's life. These programs are being funded by the mental health millage that was passed by Ottawa County voters in March, 2016 and will help to replace some of the opportunities lost due to funding cuts. Staying connected to friends and avoiding isolation is important for all people, especially the most vulnerable in our community. Involvement in the social and recreational programs is voluntary and will not impact a person’s medically necessary Medicaid services. These services are intended to add opportunities and choices for people with disabilities throughout the community.

    CMHOC has selected four agencies to run the social and recreations programs. A program will be located in each of the four quadrants of Ottawa County and will offer a variety of activities. Each program will have their own calendar and advanced registration is required. Some of the activities being offered include dance and exercise classes, bowling, movie nights, sporting events, and museum visits. If someone is interested in attending one of the programs they can contact that organization directly. The contact information is listed below.
