Good Works Farm Pre-Vocational and Vocational Habilitation includes many of the activities our Day Habilitation participants engage in and incorporates general skills needed in the workforce or skills used in the actual career to move someone along the path to employment.
Participants might be anywhere along the track from Pre-Vocational to fully-employed in the community.
GWF VocHab is held 9AM - 3PM M-F and activities depend on the objectives and goals of the individual. At this time, the farm and transportation vehicle are not wheelchair accessible.
Activities might include:
Animal Care (feeding, watering, grooming, barn tasks, procuring supplies, refilling bird feeders, etc.)
Creative Arts (art therapy, art production, or art for intrinsic value)
Culinary Arts (shopping, meal planning and preparation, or creating products to sell)
Horticulture (planting, growing, harvesting to use on the farm or to sell)
Groundskeeping (planting flowers, blowing leaves, hardscaping and softscaping)
Money Management (planning, budgeting, shopping)
Newsletter (participants create a newsletter to distribute to clients, staff, families, community, and county boards promoting self-determination, self-advocacy, and sharing important news)
Volunteering (giving back, social skills, and exploring new opportunities)
Microenterprises (dealing with the public, managing money, and selling the items we create)
