For February's resident led class Madison, our big time animal lover, taught all about the birds of prey in Kentucky. Madison volunteers at a raptor rehabilitation center which has allowed her knowledge and passion for large birds to thrive. She treated the class like a true teacher keeping the students engaged with her excitement to share her knowledge and personal experiences. We love seeing our students share their passions with others!

Caring for the community is a very important part of being an independent, contributing member of society. This week students volunteered at Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) preparing casseroles for the families that stay there. We’re very proud of them for exercising their cooking skills while also taking the time to help others! 🧑🏻‍🍳❤️

Along with Day Spring, the College for Living students had the privilege of seeing Cody Clark Magic perform. He had some great tricks, but his best trick of all was the way he weaved autism advocacy into all of his act. Cody shared his personal struggles and triumphs living with autism all while putting on a very entertaining show. He is truly an inspiration! 🪄

At Day Spring, we have so many success stories like Zach. The College for Living at Day Spring is an educational program designed so that individuals may grow necessary skills. Please donate to Day Spring so more individuals at The College for Living and our various residences may continue to live fulfilling lives.
