Guthrie Mainstream is a local organization with several locations throughout the valley. they provide day programs for adults as well as afternoon/Saturday programs for teens and kids.
They concentrate on providing quality care for individuals with disabilities in a fun environment. They feature spirit days, group activities, projects, outdoor learning, sports, and chores to help around the center. All of which is focused on increasing the individuals learning and enjoyment. The life skills that they are teaching them are invaluable now and for their future.
They have a center store that is open during the day where clients can purchase items and snacks. It's run by clients as well to teach them business and communication skills.
The individuals that work at Guthrie both on the management and therapy sides are people that are filled with compassion and patience. We know this first hand as Nathan has attended an afternoon program for some time now. We've witnessed the endless hours that they put in on behalf of all the adults and kids that attend. Our hope is that our donation will be able to further the amazing work that they do.
