The Garden Foundation

The Garden Foundation The Garden Foundation is a non-profit organization that helps those with special needs bloom where they are planted. The mission of The Garden Foundation is to support and enhance the lives of people with disabilities by providing a place of education, inspiration, independence and inclusion.

The Garden Foundation is not a one-size-fits-all program. We believe and practice person-centered-planning and therefore provide a customized experience to meet the needs of each client and their family. Every person we serve has their own interests, skills, needs and goals and should have choices in what they do. We strive to help each individual reach their full potential, whatever that may be!

Did you knowโ€ฆ October is National Disability Employment Month!? ๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿผ

One of our main focuses at TGF is providing our members with practice, exploration and vocational training for joining the workforce! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

One of the ways we do this is through our training with Dig It! Coffee Co. - SWIPE to see us in action just a few weeks ago at the World Inclusion Day Fall Fest!โ˜•๏ธ

But we donโ€™t just want to stop there - we also want to help businesses learn to be more inclusive! SO, weโ€™ve been working on a little project with the Nevada Governorโ€™s Council to create a curriculum and training for statewide businesses! This training will help businesses learn inclusive hiring practices so that EVERY business is equipped with the tools to INCLUDE! ๐ŸŒˆ

TGF is spreading cheer for all to hear! How, you ask? By writing letters to the families at The Ronald McDonald House! ๐ŸŒˆ

If you haven't heard of RMHC, it's a nonprofit organization that helps families with sick or injured children be close to hospitals and health care services, typically at no charge. ๐Ÿฅ How amazing is that!?

We wanted to send some love, encouragement, and colorful vibes to the families over at Ronald McDonald. ๐ŸŒˆโœ๐Ÿฝ

We love hearing about how impactful TGF is from our parents, and this testimonial from Jenni's parents made us smile! ๐Ÿฅฐ

"I love The Garden Foundation and what it's done for our daughter, Jenni. Jenni is shy, withdrawn and the word motivated has never been in our vocabulary when describing her. She loves the afternoons that she attends there. She's happy as I get her ready to go, she smiles and she enjoys herself. The Garden Foundation meets the clients' individual needs. This is a happy place for Jenni to thrive and the look on her face when we drop her off and pick her up says it all."

This is what TGF is all about! We love when parents see the accomplishments we've been working on. Way to go, Jenni - you are an amazing addition to our family!! ๐Ÿ’•

Did you know the "G" in our GROW program stands for giving back? ๐ŸŒˆ

Last month, we donated TIME and SUPPLIES to making kindness kits filled with essential toiletries for the Las Vegas Rescue Mission. What could be better than a kindness kit???

The Las Vegas Rescue Mission provides approximately 30,000 meals every month to needy men, women, and children in the Las Vegas valley. They also provide shelter, daily needs, and addiction recovery services ๐ŸŒŽ This was an amazing way for our crew to practice giving back to others, and we had a great time making, delivering off the kits and learning a bit more about this awesome organization.

Do you have any ideas of where we can give back next? Leave a comment below ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

Here at TGF we like to help prepare our students for the "real world" and how they can be more independent! One of the ways we do that is by practicing in REAL LIFE with 1-on-1 outings! โ 
โ 
Here's a peek into our 1-on-1 outing with MACY โ˜€๏ธโ 
โ 
This week, we worked with Macy to get her feeling more comfortable with:โ 
๐ŸŒธ different environmentsโ 
๐ŸŒธ unfamiliar peopleโ 
๐ŸŒธ independently calling businesses and booking appointmentsโ 
โ 
Macy LOVES her sweet puppy, so naturally, we decided to take a trip to our local pet washing station called Barking Dogs! ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿงผ She had an amazing time practicing all her new skills, and Enzo came out looking squeaky clean!โ

Help! We have not rec'd our zoom code for my daughter's trial class which just started. :(
Hi everyone, my name is Ezra and as a former DSP, I created an activity resource site called DSPortal.site, providing a much easier way of finding activities and private events in your community. Enjoy!
Iโ€™m the child of a mother who was lower functioning in her abilities and I am now the mother of a wonderful special needs 13yr old son. I like your page/organization because it gives me hope that there is more help now for my son then there was for my mother in her day. I know my son is smart and capable, he just needs opportunities to show that. I hope things continue to get better in the future. Thanks for reading all ๐Ÿ˜„
