Treasure House respectfully accepts a grant of $20,000 from Thunderbirds Charities to help support their Job/Employment Training Program for young adults with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities (IDD), ages 18-45.
According to the CDC, every year 111,600 intellectually and developmentally disabled age out of school-based services. Treasure House created a solution that offers a welcome environment with educational and social resources for individuals with IDD.
“We are honored, appreciative, and very excited to be the recipient of a $20,000 grant from Thunderbirds Charities for the second year in a row. This donation will allow us to assist the growth of the program which helps relieve the isolation, anxiety, depression, and high unemployment rate among young adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities by enabling and empowering them to be active, productive members of their community — and revealing the “treasure” of each individual” said Lauri Tanner, Treasure House CEO.
Upon joining Treasure House, Life Coaches will work directly with each resident one-on-one, daily, to build an individual life plan with goals for education and employment tailored to their unique abilities. Through the program, they can gain the knowledge and skills that allow them to achieve their full potential through employment and/or volunteer opportunities in their community. These opportunities allow residents to gain independence and live an active life where they feel included and supported within the community.
