A Time For Us
A Time for Us allows adults with Developmental Disabilities to participate in social and recreational opportunities in a safe and nurturing environment. Participants will have the opportunity to make lasting friendships while taking part in fun activities with peers and caring and professional staff and community members. We meet one Sunday per month, from October through June, and participate in fun and interactive activities and trips like bowling, cooking with personal chefs, arts and crafts, field days, a year-end prom and so much more. A small fee is typically collected. Times, locations, and prices will vary based on the event. For more information please contact Abel Vigo at [email protected]
Commonpoint Queens is proud to offer programs specifically designed to meet the social, emotional, educational, and recreational needs of children with autism spectrum disorders and other disabilities. An individual interview is required for each of these programs so that our professional team can welcome your child and assist in the selection of programs that would be most successful.

Internship Opportunities for teenagers with IEPs
In collaboration with our High School and College Success team we have identified students with IEPs and are now offering – paid – supportive internships with Commonpoint Queens programs. Internships are being offered at our Kids Korner After School Program, the Central Queens Food Pantry, in our Special Services Enrichment programs, as well as our Special Services recreational programs at Central Queens. Internships provide skill training, job readiness, and professional development opportunities. For more information on this program please contact Abel Vigo at [email protected].
