Leisure Services has been the primary source of recreation and leisure programming in the greater Des Moines area for people with disabilities since 1954. Link is the only provider of comprehensive, year round, community-based adult leisure programs and services are based on the philosophy that constructive use of leisure time promotes healthy human development. Experiences are strengthened by our use of community resources and our promotion of integrated activities. The program employs Certified Recreation Therapists to design, implement, and supervise program options for participants as well as part time recreation aids, and a corps of volunteers to assist participants in programs/activities.
The mission statement of Leisure Services is:
"Providing opportunities to individuals with disabilities for the development of an independent and healthy lifestyle through leisure and recreation."
