Within UCP Seguin's Life Skills Program, our staff provides participants with a full range of daytime services to enrich their lives and promote their personal growth. These services include exercise and movement therapy, art, dance and music enrichment, horticulture therapy, daily living skills enhancement, safety skills enhancement, life experience classes and assistance with self-advocacy.
The Life Skills Program also offers participants opportunities to engage in vocational experiences within the UCP Seguin Carr Center and at volunteer sites in the community. At the Center, individuals are engaged in food service training in our new Portillo’s Learning Kitchen; janitorial skills training associated with basic in-house maintenance needs; laundry care for the uniforms, towels and rags associated with Seguin Enterprises activities; interoffice mail delivery, mass mailings for agency publications, and other mailing needs; and a variety of other vocational pursuits for which they are paid commensurate wages. In the past year 131 UCP Seguin participants were also able to contribute their skills to society at volunteer sites in the community.
Outside of the classrooms, many individuals served in our Life Skills Program may participate in some community vocational experience or training, including paid work in a Seguin Enterprises business or community work site.
The Life Skills Program serves men and women with developmental disabilities, ages 18 and older who have Department of Human Services funding as well as private pay funding.
