Inspired by excellence & innovation

We offer a wide range of high quality of teaching and extra-curricular activities.

Day Program

Our Day Program campus is located on Plum Valley Drive which features multiple classrooms that are set up to accommodate Villagers based on their level of need.  The Day Program is a Medicaid Waiver and Private Pay Program.  Service hours are 9:00am-3:00pm Monday thru Friday, and also includes before and after school services.  Clients are enrolled regardless of their level of need and are provided with a program that includes an adequate staff to client ratio, nursing oversight, appropriate programming, educational support to maintain skill levels, and social activities. 

Vocational Program

The Village Centers has expanded vocational services that are provided to not just clients that attend the Village Centers Day Programs, but to individuals who live in the surrounding community who are interested in learning skills needed for long-term, meaningful employment.  The goal for the Village Centers' Vocational Programs is to enhance the meaningful life of individuals with I/DD in our community along with providing them with the skills and knowledge to be the best they can be through employment.  With our expanded services offerings, clients of all capabilities can reach their full potential.

OUR PARTNERSHIP
Reliant Vending and The Village Centers have worked in conjunction for over a year in Kingwood and the surrounding communities. Tommy Hopper, the Owner and Operator of Reliant Vending, has helped employ several individuals who all went through The Village Vocational Program.

WHAT CAN YOU DO
If you own or work for a business that is in need of vending services please contact the Village Vocational team. By adding your business to Reliant Vending’s network, you empower Villagers to further themselves professionally. The Village Centers' mission is to maximize every Villagers' potential and with your support, we accomplish this goal.

CHANGE VILLAGERS' LIVES
The Village Centers focuses on client centered services. Out partnership with Reliant Vending has enhanced the mental and physical wellbeing of our Villagers by providing their lives with increased purpose. Clients who are currently part of the Reliant Vending Team accomplish goals and exceed expectations of the businesses they serve.

"The Village has the tools and knowledge to help my son Thomas continue to evolve and grow.  It is such a unique place.  I have not found anything that compares.  I never thought he would have paid employment and now he does."

Julie Staus, parent of client in Day and Vocational Program

Afterschool Program

The Village Center's Afterschool Program adheres to growth and development needs of the children we enroll.  This program consists of opportunities for learning, socialization, life skills, and of course - fun!

The Afterschool Program serves ages 16 to 22 with developmental disabilities.  Currently, the program is housed in designated classrooms at The Village Day Program facility. 

Our goal is to encourage and support each client in the areas of socialization, independence, wellness, and self-growth.  We will work on optimizing the autonomy of our Villagers by building upon their strengths rather than focusing on their weaknesses, providing environments that help them develop positive relationships with their peers, and allowing them opportunities to develop leadership and decision-making skills.  We aim to provide an environment rich learning experiences and growth in the individuals we instruct. 

This program is funded in part by the Harris County Department of Education's CASE For Kids City Connections grant.
