Over the course of the four decades of service provision, the agency has offered a variety of programs designed to meet customer needs. Residential and shared living services have been offered during two periods of the agency's history. At present, the organization provides a host of day habilitation and employment services. In addition to service provisions, the organization sponsors a local Challenger Little League Program and supports the local Special Olympics.
But the heart of what we provide at Sunshine Village is helping those we serve discover the range of abilities they have and help them develop their skills and capabilities. We accomplish this through individualized training and innovative services. The men and women who participate in our programs can lead rich, meaningful lives given a chance – we at Sunshine Village provide that chance.
