The H.E. Sandefur Training Center offers day training, community living support, and personal assistance services through the Kentucky Medicaid Supports for Community Living and Michelle P Waivers for adults with mild, moderate, and profound intellectual and physical disabilities.
Our philosophy supports the development of pre-vocational, wellness, daily living, social, and communication skills. Our varied programs promote independence, increased self-awareness and confidence, while offering participants opportunities to make friends, develop personal interests, and spend every day achieving the things that matter most to them.
PHILOSOPHY OF SUPPORT
PROMOTION OF CHOICE AND ACHIEVEMENT
Our goal is to encourage a person to exercise choice and control over their lives. Our programs challenge each individual to develop skills and grow as much as possible.
AND CUSTOMIZED PROGRAMS
We recognize and support the dignity of each individual. Programs, goals and services
are created to meet each person’s needs, abilities, and interests and encourage people
to discover and express their gifts and capacities.
PARTNERSHIP WITH FAMILIES & PROVIDERS
Sandefur families, guardians, and area providers are invited and encouraged to partner with our caring and professional staff, and serve as equal members of the interdisciplinary team.
PARTICIPATION THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY
Our goal is to establish natural supports through our community center, volunteer program, and
outward bound program to encourage people with all abilities to form and maintain the variety of ties and connections that constitute
community life and to share the ordinary places and activities of ordinary community life.
Outings throughout the year include Boo Bingo at the Owensboro Bingo Hall, pumpkin picking and hay rides at Cates Farm, Christmas parties and other community events.
Everyone has the opportunity to participate in a variety of classes. Examples include math, history, geography, art, cooking, choir, creative writing, resume building, computer & internet safety, hygiene, gardening, exercise, and money management.
