Sample Resident Schedules

Our Day Programming services currently offer more than 500 different curriculums, (and counting!). At the beginning of every month residents have the opportunity to choose which curriculums they would like to take. Curriculum options include volunteer opportunities, art classes, cooking classes, sports classes and so much more! See the examples below of the different opportunities available. While we love Day Programming, we still find time to implement our Community Employment Program if that is something the resident is interested in. We work our Day Hab program around our individuals scheduled to ensure the opporunity is available if they want it. VNU believe work is important and provides purpose and dignity to everyone's life. 

Below are samples schedules that residents can set up. The curriculum and therapy programs work together to make sure both are available for every resident.

“We have been privileged to see the unmistakable imprint of God’s hand at work in their (our) lives through the day program and all those engaged in the mission of VNU. They are all feeling they are a part of the community and not just outsiders. The level of activity they are exposed to outside VNU while being chaperoned has been very impacting for them and exciting for us to watch. They will light up when we all go somewhere they have already experienced, telling us of their great adventure. We are so thankful for all efforts brought to bear in our adult children’s lives.”
