What does VISIONS do?

VISIONS focuses on the needs and desires of each individual as well as increasing quality of life. The staff works with participants to provide training and support to improve daily lives and help reach goals. As a group, VISIONS welcomes and supports different points of view and strives to teach our participants to be accepting of the views of others.  We strive to create an environment where a participant does not have to endure the discrimination he or she often faces in daily life.

Group sessions center on weekly topics based on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. The topic rotation includes health and wellness, personal safety, self-esteem/self-acceptance, love belonging and relationships, goal setting and personal growth, anxiety/anger management and coping skills, job and work skills, daily life management, and leisure skills/time management and creativity. The weekly topic format helps focus learning each week into one particular area and also assists our peer facilitators as they plan for the groups they are scheduled to lead. Special activities that tend to be very popular are cooking classes, afternoon karaoke, and day trips to places like Rock Springs and Allerton Park as well as museums and shopping trips.
