A full life is an active life

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

Events & Activities

We have made the difficult decision to postpone SPARK to the fall. In some form, SPARK will now be held on Saturday, November 7th. We hope you will be able to join us on this new date. However, if you have already purchased your ticket and are unable to join us, please reach out to Niki Moe at nmoe@independentfutures.com.

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 summer activities registration period ended on Monday, July 13th. 

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.
