Special Needs and Goodwill On The Move

by Robert D'Iorio

The following is a paragraph provided by Karyn Halmstad at Goodwill.
It sounds like a great program.


Goodwill On the Move is a weekend recreation program for persons with disabilities who want to put a little more ‘kick’ in their weekends. We offer three different types of leisure opportunities (called tracks) for people to choose from:

• Full Day Outings, which consist of 6 to 8 hour activities like sporting events, festivals, museums and tours. Full Day Outings are active and require independence with personal care.
• Half Day Outings, which consist of 3 to 4 hour activities like plays, smaller festivals and museums and seated tours. Half Day Outings are slower paced and appropriate for participants who need some help with personal care.
• Workshops, which consist of art, music and movement activities. Workshops are the slowest paced and appropriate for participants who need some help with personal care.

For more information, including setting up a visit or getting more information on programs, please call Karyn Halmstad, Goodwill On the Move coordinator, at (262) 970-6042 or e-mail at onthemove@goodwillsew.com . You can also find more information, including application forms and the current calendar of events, at www.goodwillsew.com.
