TVS provides day programming for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities with a focus on enrichment, community engagement, preparation for employment, and skills for independence. Lake Toxaway Charities grants help TVS enhance art activities, create areas for peace and tranquility, and promote learning and engagement.
Lake Toxaway Charities supported TVS in 2020 and 2021 with grants. These grants were used to fund various projects, including:
Enhancements of a sensory room for options for individuals to have a restful, calming area to settle themselves. The purchase of a SMART TV/Zoom panel to help TVS maintain a connection with participants who are attending programs through a virtual platform and do not feel safe attending the program in person during the COVID pandemic. Funding was also provided for the purchase of additional tablets for participants to use. Technology has been essential for the development of coping strategies and independence for individuals with significant communication barriers. Art supplies, games, and other materials for activities were also funded.
