Adaptive

The Old Colony Y  integrates people, of all ages, with adaptive needs. We endeavor to provide with varying levels of ability and/or disability, the opportunity to work together toward the common goal of healthy spirits, minds and bodies.  Our members are accepted with dignity for the gifts they have to offer and the talents they possess.
