Montrose Lifestyle and Leisure Program: Social & Economic Benefits
Many young adults with physical disabilities experience barriers to engagement in social, leisure and productive roles and activities in the community due to isolation, restricted opportunities, and difficulty accessing further education and the workforce.
The Montrose Lifestyle & Leisure Program helps break down some of those barriers and a new report shows it creates $2.21 of social and economic value for every $1 invested.
