The Drop In Center provides adults who have mental health needs an opportunity to spend leisure time in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Family members are welcome to attend. The activities are designed to enhance relationships between peers and families.
The Drop In Center is located at the Westmont Community Center, 75 East Richmond Avenue in Westmont, and is open on select Sundays throughout the year from 1-4 p.m. Visit our Program Schedules and Brochures page for a schedule of program dates.
For those who attend the Drop In Center, staff and volunteers are available to give you a warm welcome, introduce you, and show you around. You may choose to stop by for a few minutes or stay the entire time.
Lunch is provided during the first hour. The program also includes a variety of in-house activities and trips to places in the surrounding communities. Those who “drop in” can socialize, enjoy lunch, join an activity, or just relax. A current schedule of activities and outings is available on our Program Schedules and Brochures page. Although participation is encouraged, all activities are optional.
For community trips, registration is necessary due to limited vehicle seating. Register by calling 630.960.7600 on the date preceding the activity. If more people register than there are seats available, a waiting list is created. Please arrive 15 minutes before departure or your spot will be assigned to the next person on the waiting list. On community trip days, the Drop In Center may be closed and signs will be posted.
The program is free for all who attend. On community trips, participants are required to pay admission and any other expenses involved during the trip.
