The program helps participants learn new skills, develop friendships and explore their community. Horticulture is one of many hobbies that individuals can pursue through the day support program.

For more than 40 years, RAAI day support services have helped to keep individuals out of institutional settings and allow caregivers respite from care responsibilities. The program currently serves more than 150 individuals at five locations in the City of Fredericksburg and the counties of Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford.
