Dreamshine's adult day program provides education in life skills, social skills, healthy living skills, as well as job training skills. We also offer community involvement and volunteering opportunities. Currently, Dreamshine individuals who choose to participate are volunteering at one or more of the following locations:
We also run fundraisers to help benefit individuals with special needs in Ethiopia.
Our volunteer group loves knowing they are helping others and each person shines with sense of accomplishment as blankets are completed.
Dreamshine also has a great educational program for participants who would like to continue educational learning after high school. We have a team member on board with a special education degree who completes educational assessments with participants. We also have a fantastic educational coordinator who puts together lesson plans and does ongoing educational tutoring with Dreamshine participants.
We offer a wide variety of creative learning, vocational and recreational opportunities tailored to each individual's interest and needs, including but not inclusive of: bowling, out for coffee, library, swimming, hot tub (on site at Dreamshine!), massage therapy and ball room dancing (both take place once a month).
