DPRC enables young people and adults with disabilities meet their full recreational potential. The center creates an atmosphere of support, while teaching important life skills. Our staff enables each participant to discover their own abilities and strengths and show them how they are best used.

We promote communication through art, music therapy and sports. We enhance self-awareness through, art, movement, and dance. We teach independence through games, excursions, cooking and public transportation. We encourage team play through group sports and fitness. We have been serving participants from Richmond, Hercules, San Pablo, El Cerrito, Pinole and Kensington area since 1977.
