I just want to chime in and say that if you are considering a day program,
I would strongly urge you to visit The Harmony Project in Austin. It is the
most outstanding day program I have ever visited. The director, Tressie
Steeger, is such a complete program developer. She would be a great
resource for your group in learning how to survive opening up a day
activity program. Also, If you are looking for model programs for day
services, I suggest you visit with Martha Moyer, Executive Director of the
Seth Moyer Support Microboard in the King William neighborhood of South San
Antonio. Martha has pieced together a great program for her son, Seth, who
is 41. He has Section 8 HUD Housing support for his apartment. He has a
24/7 live in companion and a 5 hour a day day-worker who takes him into the
community, goes shopping, exercises at his gym, and participates in church
and other civic activities. I have copied Tressie and Martha on this email
Ed Hammer.
