Community Programs and Classes

Society's Assets is dedicated to being a strong community partner. We host several groups and events for disability awareness, peer support, and education for people with disabilities and mental health conditions and their family and friends. Follow our Facebook for current events and news.

TREES (Teaching Relationships for Everyone in Everyday Situations)

Explore relationships and boundaries with our exclusive, interactive program. TREES guides you through how different relationships develop, how to set your own boundaries, and how to recognize and respect the boundaries of others. From best friends to co-workers, each relationship is different, but they all start with ourselves. Send an email with questions about funding sources or accomodations or call 262-637-9128.
