- Wednesday meetings at Genesis United Methodist Church that focus on health and wellness, volunteering (snack packs), socializing, life skills, plus arts and crafts.
- Friday Zoom meetings
- Annual trip to Texas Advocates conference
- Social activities and field trips: movies, dinners, zoo, State Fair of Texas, Genesis Men’s retreat
- Individual support for self-advocates and their families, including information and referral, transportation and anything else that improves their quality of life (volunteer basis)
