Our programs are designed to meet the individualized needs of our clients. Our goal is to maximize each individual's potential to succeed to their varying abilities and interests.
Cornucopia’s Greenhouse Program is specifically designed to meet the physical, mental, and emotional needs of adults with developmental disabilities and the elderly. The program gives an opportunity to learn and develop life skills, including cooperation with others, setting and working toward common goals, meeting responsibilities, decision-making, problem solving, and the ability to follow complex instructions. The Greenhouse is also used to reach out to our South Valley neighborhood by proving a location for gardening education and training for our community.
SUPPORTED LIVING PROGRAM
Supported Living is a residential program that is intended to increase and promote independence and to support individuals to live in the community in a setting of their own choice. Services assist and encourage individuals to grow and develop, to gain autonomy, to become self-governing, and to pursue their own interests and goals. The program is intended to provide the skills necessary to prepare individuals to eventually live on their own in a non-assisted setting.
CONTINUING EDUCATION GROUPS
We offer weekly educational classes for participants. Classes are designed to teach our clients a new skill or help them develop a current skill. Classes include topics such as art, music, dance, brain yoga, and cooking.
The Cornucopia Civitan Club is one of two special needs clubs in the Great Southwest District. The club was chartered in March of 2008 and has grown to 51 members. The weekly Civitan meeting has become an integral part of our program and supports the Cornucopia mission. The members choose their own service and fundraising projects. The club has completed numerous projects including work at the Ronald McDonald House and the Road Runner Food Bank. The club meets on Wednesdays at 10:30 am at Cornucopia.
