Celebrate your Birthday with your friends at RAH! Each month there will be an out to activity just for RAH Members who are having a birthday! This month’s B-Day activity is on Friday, Sept 6th.
Recreation and Habilitation Services (RAH) partners with Utah Valley Paratransit (UVP) to coordinate transportation to & from RAH scheduled activities and programs. RAH coordinates this transportation service as a courtesy to our members. Because the van service is funded through Utah Transit Authority (UTA), we are required to follow UTA guidelines pertaining to this public transportation service. This service is only available to and from locations within UTA’s designated Paratransit boundaries and during the approved times. Individuals must be certified by UTA to be eligible. This RAH coordinated van service is able to accommodates those who are able to safely ride in traditional passenger vans without individual assistance. *Individuals who are not able to ride in typical passenger vans can still use the Paratransit van service but will need to schedule their rides directly through UTA, rather than through RAH. RAH coordinated van fees are calculated on a daily rate which is based on the current UTA daily rate of two one-way trips. The Special Needs Scout Troop usually meets at the RAH building on the 2nd & 4th Tuesdays of the month from 5:30-6:15pm in between the bowling and evening activities. If you have questions about this program, please call Connie Maland at 801-427-1206. Please note: RAH offers building space but does not coordinate or run this program.

$8.00 per day
