Living Resources' Ulster County Day Community Opportunities Program held their very first #Thanksgathering! They had a wonderful time sharing traditions and things they were thankful for this year. They each wrote their thoughts on feathers to decorate their "Ulster Family" turkey and then sat down to share some sides and pies made by their culinary group. Then they danced their snacks off and are looking forward to making this an annual event! #LivingResources #LivingResourcesfamily
We couldn't be happier to announce that Living Resources Day Community Opportunity Program opened in Orange County this month. Our home base for this program- the New Prospect Reformed Church. The very first car as it leaves our home base to pick up and support our newest group of individuals. We are so excited to be welcomed into this wonderful community.

Back by popular demand, we opened our 300 Washington Avenue Extension Office to program participants and families of our staff for Trick or Treating fun! Pirates, damsels, witches, and goblins arrived with their empty goody bags in the lobby, they then followed a trail of treats throughout our offices, with a stop to play candy corn bowling. So many treats, so much fun, and fabulous costumes! Goblins, Witches & More
Members of our Albany Site Based Program did a walking tour of Albany on a trail called "Downtown Is Pawsome." One of the group members requested to partake in this scavenger hunt of sorts featuring 20 statues of Nipper, the RCA mascot whose likeness has long been a fixture of the city's skyline. They began at the Visitor Center located in Quakenbush Square and talked about the history of certain buildings in the area while visiting murals all over Broadway and Pearl Street. They were “mutts” about this adventure where they paws-itively raised the “woof.”
During our 10th Annual Golf Tournament, Brendan Salmon (2019 College Experience Program graduate) and his father Michael shared their journey and experience with Living Resources College Experience Program. If you have a child, friend, family member with special needs, we urge you to listen.

Karly said it was the best day ever and is already planning another adventure!
