Since our inception in 1962, OBI has been a place of opportunity for adults with developmental disabilities. Our meaningful day program is a space for individuals to spend their days engaged with their colleagues in a safe environment.
Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Our fleet of handicapped-accessible vans and busses pick up the adults we serve at their homes between 7:30 – 8:30 a.m. and bring them either to OBI or drop them off at their job site. From 2:30 – 3:30 p.m., we return them to their homes.
OBI’s rec room is a place to individuals to relax and spend some time with their friends. Individuals can shoot pool, play Ping-pong or give the Wii a spin. You can also find table games in this space.
The Creativity Center is home to the arts & crafts space, culinary center, creative arts, a computer café and of course the ever-popular BINGO station.
In this space you’ll find the physical therapist, OBI’s in house theater and a space for yoga practice.
On any given day this space holds basic reading and writing classes. The room also holds a library that was created by a local girl scout troop.
Once a week a community musician works with OBI program participants who have specific sensory needs. These individuals have the opportunity to play a variety of instruments to promote and stimulate a more productive lifestyle.
Friendship Civitan Club.
At OBI, we provide services that promote one’s social interaction. In 2001 we partnered with the Civitan Club of Glen Burnie to form the Friendship Civitan Club that enables OBI program participants to give back to their community. Typical service projects include collecting food to give to local food pantries, designing flower arrangements to take to the elderly, and creating gift bags for returning service members to be given upon arrival at the airport. The club also has formed bell choir that practices once a week and performs for area assisted living and nursing homes.
