WE WORK Systems: Designed to assist individuals with acquisition, retention, or improvement in self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills, training modules are set up to provide a variety of options that create a stimulating environment for people served and is driven by the individual person-centered plan.


WE CREATE: 

“WE Create: An Arts Education Opportunity,” offers art residencies. The goals of the residences are to foster creativity, artistic expression and self confidence in adults with disabilities. Participants engage in hands-on, interactive arts programming led by professional teaching artists who have experience working with individuals of varying ability levels. WE’s residencies focus on visual art, music, and dance. WE Create offers participants increased knowledge of artistic discipline and successful application of skills; increased motivation, engagement, sense of pride; and improved interpersonal communication and socialization skills.

                                                                WE WITHOUT WALLS:

WE WITHOUT WALLS includes our Wake E Live! remote learning program and WE GO community based programming. Our remote learning and community activities focus on healthy, social, sustainable and fun activities. WE Without Walls values disability inclusion. Disability inclusion means understanding the relationship between the way people function and how they participate in society, and making sure everybody has the same opportunities to participate in every aspect of life to the best of their abilities and desires.

Wake E Live!: Each weekday, we host online classes. The classes are taught in 45 minute increments. This is a live interactive class where participants interact with one of our trainers and their peers. Classes include nutrition, safety, health, art, self-advocacy, exercise, and more! This program meets participants where they are and are crafted to meet the needs of the people we serve. Social engagement is vital for the life of a human being. Involuntary isolation can make a person feel “less than human” and bring up negative feelings. Wake E Live! seeks to combat the harmful effects of social isolation, while ensuring the safety of the people with disabilities.

WE GO: WE GO is our hub-based community integration program for our current participants and to those new to WE. WE GO provides meaningful community outings and demonstrates WE’s commitment to offering increased opportunities and options for the people we serve. We recognize that despite most people with disabilities live in the community; they are often not truly engaged in their community. Our goal is to break down barriers to social inclusion and build community relationships through self-determination and personal growth. Our small staffing ratio provides just the right mix of self-determination and teamwork.
