Embracing the spirit of the season, our Program Participants and AbilityOne employees of The Douglas Center are spreading joy through ongoing volunteer activities. ๐ŸŒŸ This holiday, we're not only giving back to the community but also empowering our participants with valuable life skills and independence.

A cherished part of our festive traditions is the weekly visit to 'Touched By An Animal,' a non-profit haven for abandoned cats. ๐Ÿพ Our participants revel in the opportunity to interact and play with the feline friends, crafting cat toys with love. ๐ŸŽ The impact has been profoundโ€”several participants, once quiet and introverted, now bloom with newfound confidence after this heartwarming volunteer experience.

Here's to the joy of giving and the transformative power of community this holiday season! ๐ŸŒˆ "

We're overjoyed to share more moments from The Douglas Center's Teachable Goodwill Shopping Experience. ๐Ÿ›’๐ŸŽ“๐ŸŽThe generosity of the Goodwill Cares program has allowed us to create ongoing opportunities for our program participants and AbilityOne employees to embark on a unique and empowering journey. ๐Ÿ’™ This initiative is not just about shopping; it's a powerful teaching moment in action.

As our small groups explore the local Goodwill Stores in Skokie and Evanston, Illinois, our professional staff members guide them through invaluable lessons on money management, making wise choices, budgeting, empowerment, and building self-esteem. The smiles, laughter, and pure joy radiating from this experience warm our hearts every single time.

๐Ÿ™ We remain profoundly grateful for the ongoing support of the Goodwill Cares Program. Their generosity not only provides a shopping experience but also cultivates an environment for further developing and improving the independent living skills of those we serve. It's a gift that truly keeps on giving!

The Douglas Center was once again the recipient of $2,000 in Goodwill voucher certificates from the Goodwill Cares program. These Goodwill vouchers are distributed to our program participants and AbilityOne employees during the holiday season.
The Douglas Center utilizes this generous gift as a teachable moment and an opportunity for each individual to purchase their own gifts. Small groups of program participants and AbilityOne employees are accompanied by their professional staff members to the local Goodwill Store in Skokie and Evanston, Illinois. Each person is given a specific amount to spend. Throughout this experience, they are guided in shopping lessons around money management, understanding how to make good value choices when shopping, budgeting, empowerment in making choices, and self-esteem.
The joy that is witnessed in this process is heartwarming for our staff. While some have chosen practical items like clothing, wallets, and beauty products, others are opting for home dรฉcor, music, and sports equipment. And, of course, many are selecting gifts for their loved ones to spread holiday cheer.
We are deeply appreciative of the generosity given to us by the Goodwill Cares Program. This donation not only provides shopping experience it also provides an opportunity to further develop and improve the independent living skills of those we serve. Truly, a gift that keeps on giving! -Esteem
