Day Program

Devereux California offers an Adult Day Program for individuals with intellectual, emotional and/or physical disabilities. Adults can participate in activities, such as music lessons, volunteer work, computer skills development, cooking classes and daily trips to community events.

Our Adult Day Program features behavioral management programming, pre-vocational training, and social and educational activities. We help individuals build skills related to daily living, communication, problem-solving, sensory integration, community and work engagement, and creative arts. Our program assists individuals in developing and maintaining effective behavior management skills and coping strategies in a safe and supportive environment. Participants also can engage in structured activities to enhance social skills, teamwork, relaxation, physical fitness and well-being.

The Adult Day Program is available to all individuals enrolled in Devereux California's services, as well as interested adults in the surrounding communities. Our program runs five days per week, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Each participant has an individualized schedule and objectives based on ongoing assessments of their needs and skill level. The overall goal of our program is to help individuals develop the skills needed to maximize independence, foster social and emotional growth, and enhance their overall quality of life.

Devereux California's longstanding Greenhouse pre-vocational program is an integral part of our Adult Day Program. Participants have an opportunity to acquire job and customer service training, and learn the basics of gardening in a 2,000 square foot greenhouse in Goleta. Individuals can grow succulents, herbs, vegetables and decorative plants, while engaging in a wide range of activities and tasks for all levels and abilities.
