Community-based volunteer opportunities, recreational activities, classes and job readiness training are provided through our Life Skills program. Classes are designed to teach skills that are applicable in real-life situations such as budgeting, pedestrian safety and health & wellness. A cooking program that includes beginning, intermediate and advanced classes focuses on healthy meal options utilizing fresh produce from our on-site garden. Partner organizations for community volunteerism include Sonoma County Library, Meals on Wheels, Redwood Empire Food Bank, St Vincent De Paul and Restyle Marketplace. The Life Skills program strives to tailor each person’s day to his or her expressed preferences, interests and goals.
The focus is on building daily living skills in areas including:
- Socialization and communication
- Daily living
- Self advocacy
- Rights and Responsibilities
