About

Project Description: The Lukas Community is a residential community for developmentally challenged adults. Volunteers spend approximately twelve months living and working with the adult residents who have a range of abilities. Some work is within the households (personal care, meal preparation, housekeeping, etc.) and some is outside in therapeutic gardens, dance, weaving, music, fitness, painting and crafts, and excursions for concerts, hiking, ice cream, etc. There are 16 residents, 10 staff members and 8 or 9 volunteers. Volunteers are welcome to come from outside of the US. Each volunteer has a private room, all meals provided, and monthly stipend for personal expenses.

Holiday and leisure time regulation: Volunteers have 3-4 weeks (approximately 20 work days) off depending upon the length of their service (12 months in most cases) and Lukas staffing needs. Vacation time is provided during our regularly scheduled winter and spring break periods when many residents are away. Volunteer vacations must be pre-approved by Lukas before making definite plans to be away.
