"We are very sad that Jennie will be leaving you and all the wonderful people that work there. You have been so patient and kind with Jennie and it shows. I think she has come along quite well since she started there. She has grown to love and trust all the staff and her behavior has improved a bit. Your facility is the best, inside and out but most of all the staff. We feel badly that we have to take her out now and start all over again. But we learned that Jennie may not need one on one anymore, at least in most areas.
Thank you for your expertise, patience and kindness. We'll miss you all!
Do members have to attend all 5 days of the work week?
We have many individuals that attend on a limited basis. The program goal is about helping each person achieve what they are ready to achieve.
What activities are taking place in the program room?
There is a variety of recreational, skill building and community activities happening in our area. In Options, individuals get the opportunity to cook full meals, practice difficult social situations in a controlled setting in our role-play class, relax in our stress management class, discuss community employment issues in our career exploration class, or work up a sweat in our daily exercise classes.
What type of activities take place in the community?
We have trekked north to the Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame, slid south to Discovery World in Milwaukee, toured several local, and not-so-local Museums, took Sled Dog Rides at Siberian Outpost, and we offer many other fun-filled and educational adventures.
Is this just an arts and crafts program?
Absolutely not! We encourage participation in multiple community activities, and folks in the program are provided an opportunity to volunteer in the community each month. This is a great way to help individuals learn social skills and problem-solving techniques.
