Education is an important component of every aspect of The Serving Cup’s work.
In housing, we provide education and training to residents and parents to support the transition to supported independent living. We do this through both formal orientation sessions and informal consultations with interested parties.
In our community building efforts, we educate, connect, and engage with parents and existing prospective adult residents. We use these community building opportunities to try to understand ways to improve housing models.
Finally, our Board has a learning mindset in everything we do. We attend seminars and conferences on these topics. We are members of related organizations. We learn from our loved ones with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD). We are always seeking to open our minds to the needs of the I/DD community.
