Hoquiam School District Transition Program

This has been a really great month for The Arc. One of the things that has made it so has been our partnership with Hoquiam High School and their Transition program.

Earlier this school year, we were approached by HHS administration on ways we could help enrich their transition program. The solution we arrived at was to host students and HHS staff here at our office every Wednesday, to enable them to use our life skills facility to practice cooking and other independence skills, as well as get to know new people in a professional setting.

It's been great! This is exactly what we built this facility to do! 

In completely selfish terms, the students and staff are great people who are great for office morale... and one of them is a really exemplary cook and graciously shares the dishes he prepares.
