Wellness Care Farm
Nourishing Hearts Wellness Care Farm's "Caring to Work" program provides high quality, engaging skill development opportunities for people with an intellectual disability that aims to enhance job-ready, social and life skills while also developing and building on strengths and supporting community participation.
The objectives are to:
Nourishing Hearts helps people to discover the different types of work available, gain an understanding of the duties they may be asked to carry out, what they can expect and how they should conduct themselves in the work place.
This can include expanding on the skills people have built at school, by setting achievable and individualized goals in collaboration with parents and or carers. If good progress is made, additional supported work may be arranged in one of Nourishing Hearts' social enterprises. If participants decide they don’t want to transition to additional supported employment, we can still help to build skills in an inclusive environment, where people can also develop lasting friendships.
