The PIER Center

The PIER Center For Life Enrichment is specifically designed with the adult with different abilities in mind. This weekday program allows each individual to experience life at it's best! Meeting on the campus of Adventures In Missions in Gainesville, allows each person to work alongside of the 65+ neurotypical employee's on the campus. Each day consists of working on the practical issues of everyday living, physical exercise, Bible Study, and working on the campus facilities and grounds. We also spend time working on The PIER's two enterprises—Vending machines and making and packaging Ellie Mae's Sweet Treats (Our very own brand of dog treats). We also encourage their participation in selling our Ellie Mae's Sweet Treats at local farmers markets and community events as these opportunities arise.
