Residential Services

The residential portion of the funds raised at the 50th Anniversary Gala are in the process of being spent in a wide range of ways that are all designed to enrich the lives of the residents.  One adult home is purchasing a patio set and a recumbent exercise bicycle.  Another adult home is expanding on a special quiet place that has a bench and a planned “peace-rock garden” and we are adding a free standing porch swing that allows people the opportunity to move gently and relax.  Our younger adolescents will have two large play-ground swings that we know gives them great pleasure.  And one of the student homes is purchasing items to provide the residents with a fun “sensory diet”.  One adult is able to go on his most preferred vacation to Florida as a result of the generosity of the fund raising committee.  A few students who do not have the means to enroll in a YMCA program will benefit from the enriched routines made possible by a memberships in the local YMCA.  We are looking forward to the spring and summer when multiple residents will have the opportunity to consider therapeutic horseback riding which is being underwritten by funds from the gala.   

There is a theme of relaxing and seeking fitness and health as yoga classes, relaxation training for staff and fitness activities dominate the special opportunities being provided to the residents.  Staff at the residence are very grateful that these enrichment opportunities have been provided through fund raising efforts.
