Operating between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, the Day Service offers life-skill building activities, social skill building opportunities, vocational skills training, volunteer opportunities and recreational options at two locations: Day Service Central (1313 Border) and Day Service East (Marion).
These activities focus on skill building while providing the participant with a sense of accomplishment, ownership, group membership and self-esteem.
Overall, the goals of this service are to:
- Provide the exposure to skill building and healthy activities during the day time hours,
- Provide support to residential service providers by engaging the participant in activities that impact healthy residential living, and
- Facilitate participation in ongoing vocational activities.
- The Specialized Employment Training (SET) is offered at our Marion location. This is a program tailored to each individual and focuses on job skills training, resume and interview preparation. This involves a 7 in class portion and a 60 day work practicum.
