Volunteers for organisation working for mentally challenged adults in New York

Requested by

Ayodele Cares

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Our organisation is an NGO based in New York. We assist mentally challenged adults, aiming to help them integrate into the community and to retain their dignity. We aim to provide services that will help each individual reach his or her maximum potential

Setting up a day centre with tailored prgrammes is one way to help this group of people, and this is what we want to do because at present there is little acceptance of people with mental difficulties in the community, and also very little opportunity for them to participate as volunteers, or for volunteers from the community to work with our clients.

Before we can do any of this, however, we need to look for funds, and to do this we need a team of volunteers who can help us write proposals, find funds and plan the project with us.

What is your project and how will it help?

The Day Habilitation programmes at Ayodele Cares will be offering programmes which will promote community experience and strive for independence. The Day Habilitation programme will be designed to give each participant the opportunity to learn self-care, nutrition, household skills, communication, sensory motor challenges, and behavioural and social development skills. The daily programme will begin at 8.30am and will finish at 3pm, free lunches will be provided to all of our clients. Services will be provided both on-site as well as in the community. Our clients will be able to form relationships within the community. In addition, they will be given the opportunity for volunteering. Support services will be established based on each individual’s Direct support staff will be fully trained to work with each individual we serve. The Day Habilitation staffing ratio will be on a 1 to 4; a higher ratio will be provided as needed for more medically and behaviourally challenged clients. Our Day Habilitation programme will be staffed by a registered nurse on-site who will ensure quality medical care for all our clients. Our goal is to acknowledge our clients for their unique talents and abilities, ensuring community integration and assisting each individual to meet reach his or her maximum potential.
