Last week, Living Resources’ Day Community Opportunity Programs (DCOP) in Schenectady and Albany enjoyed a beautiful day and participated in an egg hunt. Each group had their selected color of eggs to locate and two special golden eggs were hidden to add to the excitement and win extra points. All of the participants and staff engaged and enjoyed it!
Schenectady DCOP’s Staff and admin team members came together, using their own funds to create baskets for each participant. Sergio Camacho, Assistant Director for the Art Program, donated colored pencils to add to the baskets. The baskets included colored pencils, notebooks, healthy snacks and different items such as nail polish, cars, etc.
Living Resources’ DCOP is a “without walls” program offered throughout the Capital/Saratoga Region, as well as Taconic and Hudson Valley, for adults 18 years and older. Individuals in the program participate in a wide variety of activities including cultural and artistic pursuits, volunteer opportunities, recreational activities, and skill-building classes. Skill-building classes include but are not limited to art, computer instruction, cooking, money management, reading, and travel training.
The DCOP program provides an environment that fosters community inclusion, self-sufficiency, and self-advocacy for its participants.
