Mission Statement

The mission of Tavon Center is to provide meaningful daily experiences for young adults with disabilities in a caring, productive environment. Through working in the gardens, caring for animals, practicing daily living activities, and building interpersonal skills, participants gain capability and confidence. Bonding with peers and staff creates a circle of friends, an invaluable support system for our participants. Daily stimulation and personal connections foster a healthy lifestyle that helps sustain physical and mental health.

Description

The Tavon Center program fosters a sense of purpose and belonging in young adults with disabilities through gardening, community involvement, and skills that can be transfered to an employment setting. At our site in Issaquah, WA, program participants tend five acres of accessible gardens, care for animals, and sell produce and eggs at local farmers’ markets.
