Training

The members that are not physically able to volunteer or do not want to participate in volunteer activities, yet in order to help them with sensory issues, they have the opportunity to visit the Santa Fe Ranch to interact with animals out in nature.

During lunch time they are taught how to appropriately use silverware and use good manners.

During the afternoon they work on their individual goals and develop skills by playing video games, board games and computers.

Our members choose from activities in or outside the program that they feel more comfortable with.
