THCI does not currently operate a specialized adult day program at this time. However we will provide support to people during the day based on our “It’s all about you” philosophy. We design programs around the individual’s wants, needs, and dreams. Programs such as community outings and volunteering.
THCI also works with various organizations to assist individuals with, within the community, such as attending school, work or day program in the community. Our activities include, but are not limited to arts and crafts, cooking, local and out-of-state trips, holiday and international themed parties, theater shows, and faith-based events.
Based on the Christian faith, THCI provides an avenue of worship for the individuals who so wish, in form of group study and Praise time. Provision is also available for denominational support to our THCI families. However, THCI will not debar any resident or family members from observing their individual religious beliefs
