At Barrier-Free we believe that offering a social group is crucial to fostering a thriving and interconnected community.
Social Club's mission is to provide fun, safe, and welcoming opportunities for individuals of diverse abilities to come together and enjoy all our community has to offer, foster new friendships, and develop a sense of confidence and independence in our society.
Upcoming Social Clubs
Barrier-Free's March & April Social Clubs have both been postponed due to the developing COVID-19 situation.
We do not plan to cancel registration for Social Clubs at this time. If you are unable to attend the rescheduled date (when determined) we will gladly refund your registration. If you would like your registration refunded immediately, please contact Barrier-Free directly and we will be happy to do so.

Carpooling with other participants can be arranged via Facebook Event pages created for each Social Club. Check us out on Facebook @BarrierFreeMD to locate event pages.
Q: Can my family members and friends register for Social Clubs? A; The mission for Barrier-Free's Social Cub is to bring together individuals with disabilities to share a social/independent space. We would prefer to keep our social clubs focused on this intended mission therefore we ask that large groups of family members and/or friends not join us on Social Outings. One-on-one support staff/counselors can attend as needed.
Q: I don't have a disability, can I still attend Social Clubs? A; Barrier-Free loves our mentors that keep our programs thriving! Mentors are typically developing individuals that want to support/join in on our work and mission by participating in any Barrier-Free program. To become a Barrier-Free mentor visit our Volunteer page. Mentors are needed for Social Clubs, Inclusive Theater Companies, classes, and more!
