ABOUT 

We live out the Learn aspect of our care model through various forms of community programming.

Life Enrichment
Life Enrichment gathers together Ben’s Hope residents and members of the larger community, every weekday from 9am to 3pm. Programming gives participants the chance to learn, farm, create and volunteer both at Benjamin's Hope and throughout our community.

RPM
We are proud to offer Rapid Prompting Method (RPM) training at Benjamin’s Hope to our residents, their families as well as members of the larger community. Founded with a core value of assumed intelligence, Ben’s Hope continues to research forms of communication that help those with developmental differences connect with their world. RPM is one such method, with evidence of empowering those with nonverbal communication styles to express their intelligence and inner thoughts.


I believe RPM has given my son a voice that he never felt he had before. My son understands a lot of things, he just has a hard time regulating his body.  However, with RPM, he is learning to communicate with people.
— Cindy, Parent to a Ben’s Hope resident

What is included in a typical day of Life Enrichment programming?
Life Enrichment shifts from day to day; however, programming regularly includes devotions, praise and worship, fitness classes, a daily snack, volunteerism in the community, creating products to send to market, discussion of news and current affairs, farming and gardening.
