The Cincinnati Recreation Commission’s Division of Therapeutic Recreation offers leisure services for individuals with disabilities. The services promote healthy lifestyles and provide opportunities to participate in high-quality recreational and cultural experiences in the community.

As advocates for individuals with disabilities, we provide inclusive and therapeutic recreation programming choices and promote accessibility at all CRC facilities.

Inclusion Support Services

We provide a consultative approach to supporting individuals with disabilities in all CRC programs and facilities. Our goal is to provide opportunities for inclusion that reduce the physical, programmatic and attitudinal barriers. In addition to providing support to CRC facilities, we act as a resource to our community in areas such as advocacy, disability awareness and disability training

Therapeutic Recreation Services

 We implement goal-oriented programs for individuals with disabilities which promote a healthy lifestyle and provide exposure to cultural experiences in the community.
