National Ability Center (NAC) to Operate PC ALL Programming, Will Continue to Provide Lifelong Learning and Day Support for Young Adults with Disabilities

After many years of leadership and service to PC ALL, the founders have stepped down and joined forces with the NAC to carry on the PC ALL mission

PARK CITY, UTAH (Sept. 28, 2023) — Today, the National Ability Center (NAC), a nonprofit that provides world-class adaptive recreation and outdoor adventures for individuals and families with disabilities, announced that it will be acquiring and leading Park City Adult Lifelong Learning (PC ALL), a transitional learning and community socialization group for adults with developmental disabilities. PC ALL was originally founded in 2014 by Cindy and Leigh Beem, Dana Reilly and Shelly Smith with additional community support from local Park City families and educators.

“We’re so thankful to the Beem family who saw the need for young adults in Park City and created a much-needed, community-based program utilizing local resources to help their members gain independent living skills, socialization and more,” said Danny Glasser, CEO of the National Ability Center. “We are thrilled and honored to carry on their legacy and mission through continued PC ALL programming run entirely by the NAC.”

PC ALL was created at a time when there were limited social opportunities for the neurodiverse community members who were aging out of the school system in Park City. Families were looking for a place where their loved ones could continue to learn, gain independence and find social connection and joy. Since its inception, Cindy and Leigh Beem have led PC ALL, and after many years of leadership and service, have stepped down and passed the torch to the NAC. The NAC is working diligently on all its current growth initiatives, including leading the PC ALL programs. 

“We want to thank everyone for participating in the PC ALL program,” said Cindy Beem, co-founder of PC ALL. It’s been an incredible journey and we truly believe that the participants and the staff are what makes this program and organization a success. We are grateful to the NAC for continuing  to offer PC ALL day programs in the Park City area. We will cherish our time operating PC ALL and will forever have fond memories of the friends we made and lives we touched along the way.”

PC ALL meets Monday’s and Friday’s after school at the NAC and hosts trips to Salt Lake City once a month.
