Active Re-Entry is a community based program which assists individuals with disabilities to achieve or maintain self-sufficient, productive lives and live independently within their own communities.

Some of our programs include: help in attaining assistive technology (wheelchairs, ramps, emergency call systems); training for those losing their sight; caregiver and grief support groups; PAWS Animal Therapy Program; SCOODEO - a nationally recognized safety training program for those who have no other means of transportation than an electric scooter; PERKIE Travels - a coordinated cancer treatment transportation system to help get people to the Utah Valley area for their radiation treatment; nursing home diversion and transition programs and other programs.

Active Re-Entry serves the seven counties of Eastern Utah -- Dagget, Duchesne, Uintah, Carbon, Emery, Grand and San Juan -- just over 27,000 square miles.

 We are committed to promoting the rights, dignity, and quality of life for all persons with disabilities. We offer many services and resources or can help guide to other service providers. Please feel free wander around our website and to contact us.

Silpada bling for a good cause...


On Friday, January 2014 from 5pm-7pm there will be a Sipada Jewelry Party to benefit the PERKIE travels shuttle. Without this shuttle system, people couldn't get to the Utah Valley Area for life saving cancer treatments.

Guys, Valentine's Day is coming... just give the checkbook to the women in your life. This way you are sure to get the right thing and you are helping out a worthy cause too.

Call Lisa at ARECIL for more information at (435) 637-4950.

And technologies available such as Amplified Phones, Personal Listening Devices, Flashing Doorbells, etc.

The PAWS 2014 Calendar - A furry friend a day!

Keep track of the important dates in your life and support a great cause at the same time. The colorful 2014 PAWS Calendar is packed with great photographs of the PAWS animals doing what they do best, sharing their love with and giving support to children and seniors.

Proceeds from the sale of the PAWS Calendar go to support this outstanding program that has volunteers throughout Carbon and Emery Counties. PAWS is not a line item of some government ledger... proceeds from this calendar go to such things as therapy animal registrations, identification and training.

This dedicated four legged support team and their equally dedicated volunteer humans share their love at places like the Price City Library, local schools and regional care centers. They give joy and comfort to all they come in contact with and they might as well give joy and comfort to you every day of the year.

Calendars can be purchased for $15 at the Active Re-Entry office or sent through the mail by calling (435) 637-4950. Do your part and support this worthy cause with PAWS.

PERKIE Travels: More Than Faces On A Shuttle Bus...


The PERKIE Travels Program is more than a shuttle bus; it carries our loved ones, friends and neighbors to Provo Valley Medical Center daily for life saving treatments.

Please join us in watching these videos that celebrate the fight against cancer.

PERKIE_Video-1-Dewean_Lund2:20 minutes in length.

PERKIE_Video-2-Jeanne_Martin3:45 minutes in length.

PERKIE_Video-3-Ruby_Cordova5:10 minutes in length.

PERKIE_Video-4-Group_Video 6:35 minutes in length.

Eighty percent of the funding comes from the Susan G. Komen Foundation. PERKIE Travels is not associated with the American Cancer Society and has not received any funding from them. So we need to turn to donations to keep this life saving program going.

And keep checking back... in a few weeks these will be in a larger video format for viewing on the web.

For more information or to help out with the program, you can contact Active Re-Entry at (435) 637-4950.

THE GOLDEN RULE: Animal Assisted Activities in Educational Environments

Local School Psychologist, Amy Bell and Active Re-Entry Director Nancy Bentley have co-written a book entitled "The Golden Rule" based around 'Lessons and Ideas On Utilizing Animal Assisted Activities with Dogs In Schools and Classroom Settings.'

The purpose of this book is to provide a resource for professional who are working with children in educational settings. Both Amy and Nancy, having spent an inordinant amount of time researching curriculum and strategies in using animals in education, discovered that there was very little to be found that was specific to that type of setting.

The hope in putting the book together is to provide a curriculum on a variety of subjects, both social and academic, that can be used as a starting place in implementing Animal Assisted Activities (AAA) and Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) in school settings. These books are available for sale for $24.95 (includes shipping and handling... or $20 if you pick up your copy at Active Re-Entry.
