The Guild at Raphael Village
stablished in 2013, The Guild offers post-secondary education, as well as vocational and artist guild training for young adults (18 years of age or older) who may have Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down syndrome, or other intellectual differences. Our day program also focuses on the continued development of life skills for greater independence both at home and in the community.
The Guild offers continued academics that focus on skills needed for greater independence and personal enrichment, such as money and time management, resume writing, book clubs, and creative writing. The post-secondary education program is tailored to the individual ability level and interests of each Guild member.
Our unpaid vocational training internships prepare our members for the workforce through continued discovery and development of individualized interests and skill sets. Members that participate in these internships gain real-world work experience that will help develop their individual portfolio of skills needed to secure future employment within the community.
Embedded in our program is the ongoing strengthening of daily life skills, including housekeeping, wellness and self-care, social and human relationship skills, healthy cooking and baking, and goal-setting.
The Guild is both a private pay program and Medicaid Provider that accepts both NOW and Supports waivers based on availability.
