The CHOICE Program

PROPOSED PROJECT:

Enhance the CHOICE Program attendance and engagement

Park Lawn is asking for your consideration regarding the $2,500 grant from Republic Services for funding to enhance The CHOICE program attendance and engagement.

The CHOICE program at the Park Lawn Vocational Services facility wants every participant to have the opportunity to connect with the community. Thirty participants along with four residents of our Worth CLIA (Community Integrated Living Arrangement) currently take part in the program. Participants become part of the community through volunteering, working or enrichment activities.

Park Lawn’s CHOICE program began in November 2015 and is a community-based program that promotes responsibility, independence and self-advocacy for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
