In Motion and Momentum Plus (IM&M+) is a 13 week program for persons with disabilities 18+ living in the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM). IM&M+ is for people who have significant potential for success in their lives. It is especially useful for those who, for one reason or another, may have been stuck or feeling like they've been moving in a direction that is not right for them. The program is about getting unstuck, moving in a way that feels good, harnessing your considerable potential and creating the life you want to live.
The program has three parts:
IN MOTION is a 3 week program (3 days per week; 6 hours each day). This first part of the program is about:
- Better understanding what's most important to you;
- Knowing the skills, strengths and supports you already have;
- Building and extending your skills, strengths and supports; and
- Shaping a vision for your life that feels exciting, right and possible.
MOMENTUM is a 4 week program (4 days per week for the first 3 weeks and 3 days in week 4; also 6 hours each day). This second part helps you to continue to build on your vision and move towards making it a reality. It is also an opportunity for you to meaningfully contribute to your community by taking part in a community project that you and others in the group choose as a way of making your community better.
MOMENTUM+ is a 6 week program (one day a week for 6 hours). It helps you work towards living the life you want to lead by capitalizing on your strengths and skills, supporting you with the steps in your action plan, reconnecting you with your IM&M+ group and helping you seek the support of other allies in your community.
All sessions respect that you already have lots of life experience, skills, important connections and wisdom – that you are the expert on your own life and in control of your own future. The program is all about providing experiences and opportunities that help you to take charge and live the life you want to live.
