The Village Difference
What makes us different? Our staff, facilities and stories are only a few of the many things that set us apart.
Creating inclusive opportunities and discovering abilities of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
“We want to be able to pursue our mission without having to exclude someone because of their funding source whenever possible.” – Kim Brusatori, Founder & Visionary
WHAT IS THE VILLAGE?
The Village strives to create the support and services needed to affect positive change in the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families, and our local community, so that these individuals may reach their maximum potential and level of independence.
Our newly designed programs are designed to help Villagers maintain and expand social and life skills, personal wellness, pre-vocational and vocational skills, and critical thinking skills, while becoming more involved in our community.
These programs are designed to give participants the opportunity to socialize, learn essential skills, maintain and improve fundamentals in math and reading (practical math and reading skills for daily living), work and volunteer in our local community, and enrich daily living experiences.
Activities offered are designed to be innovative, enriching, and to promote opportunities for inclusion and the development of life skills through a safe, highly structured schedule of activities.
The Village also offers Residential options and a number of services benefitting individuals with developmental disabilities, including transportation, respite, and after-school care.
