In addition to staff evaluations, each person's abilities, relationships, interests and dreams are explored in the planning process to ensure an individualized program.

Individuals participate in activities of their choice (uch as cooking, technology, recreation, artistic expression, exercise, music and more.  Individuals gain skills in communication, mobility, socialization, safety , personal care, money management and daily activities necessary to increase their independence. A variety of job opportunities and preliminary job skill training is available.

Highly trained and supportive staff encourage individuals to fully participate in community life. Through many volunteer opportunities and community connections, people are discovering their own interests, talents and aspirations, while developing independence and self-esteem.
