A full life is an active life

We offer an exciting calendar of social, cultural,
and educational activities.

Events & Activities

Welcome to the Independent Futures events calendar! Activities registration opens each quarter with a new calendar. To be added to the notification list, please email center@independentfutures.com. The winter activities registration period ended at 3:00 PM on Monday, January 4th. 

Before signing up for activities, new participants are required to meet with staff and complete an introduction process. This is necessary to guarantee that the best supports are available for each individual.

Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns and we look forward to hearing from you soon. If you would have any questions, please reach out to Jeff Morthorst at (224) 545-3925.
