The Special Services Department takes great pride in offering a wide variety of activities year-round.  Utilizing the beautiful park system, the Costick Center, and various public schools, programs are offered for individuals of all ages.  We work closely with the private sector, City commissions and various youth groups and organizations in an attempt to offer one of the most well-rounded group of recreation and cultural programs in the state.

The Department of Special Services Scholarship Fund provides city residents access to our park facilities and programs regardless of their economic situation. Our scholarship program provides income eligible youth, ages 17 & under, exposure to positive experiences, active lifestyles, and mentors, as well as opportunities to gain and refine life skills, and to develop positive personal and social assets.

The number of city residents who apply and qualify for Special Services Scholarships continues to grow and we are committed to provide this service for our community members in need.  Some restrictions do apply. Click Here for an Application Form.
