The workshop is large, colorful, and bright. It contains an arts and crafts room that is open to all clients to be as creative as they want to be. This location has a sensory room with a tactile scene on the wall with fun lights and a cool bubble machine. We have an exercise room to motivate our clients to live a healthy lifestyle. Another room that our workshop has is a multi media room that allows our individuals to sit back and relax and learn something new. We have a great CLW Café for our clients to learn to whip up fun and healthy snacks. Some of these snacks were made from our homemade garden right in our backyard. Our program at Geneva is free flowing and our individuals have the opportunity to choose how they would like to structure their day. We love FUN!
