Our Adult Social Group is for individuals with developmental disabilities 18 years of age and up. It has been established for several years and meets monthly at various locations around Frederick County. To date the group has had outings at the Frederick YMCA, Faux School on Carroll Creek, Creekside Conference Facilities on Carroll Creek, Crumland Farms, Adventure Park, the Jefferson Ruritan, Skate Frederick, Seven Ten Bowling in Hagerstown, and Cunningham Falls State Park.

Carol Custer LLC, is providing a much needed service to the special needs community — one that is not only needed in Frederick, but across the country! What a wonderful model and how refreshing as a parent to show up at the end of the meeting and see your young adult just “hanging,” chatting, and laughing — all it really takes to develop a new friendship — something that is now being accomplished in a safe environment and using a great developmental model. ~ Parent of a member of our Adult Social Group
Last night I went to an alumni dinner . . . I actually mixed and mingled with people . . . This was the first time I went up to people and spoke to them, and I attribute it to your program. This was a big step for me. ~ Member of our Adult Social Group
Our son finally has a chance to interact with other adults with similar gifts and social challenges. My husband and I can meet members and parents of members so we can provide each other with support. The members are being encouraged to develop the social skills necessary for structuring group activities for themselves. My son finally feels that he “belongs.” ~ Parent of member of our Adult Social Group
