Daily Life

From the beginning, David’s House Ministries has partnered with families, churches, businesses and foundations in a sincere attempt to meet the ever changing needs of our residents.  For nearly 30 years, as many of our residents needs have changed, we have adjusted our current programs, staffing patterns and added adaptive equipment to better meet these needs.  Our intent is to adjust our program to the individual when possible and give them an opportunity to move into one of our other homes when the time is right.  We call this a limited continuum of care.  We cannot promise that we will always be able to meet an individual residents changing needs.  But it is our intent, and usually the resident and parent/guardians desire that David’s House would be their home for the rest of their lives.

Our goal at David’s House Ministries is to provide a fun, life-enriching experience for all of the residents.

Through daily activities in the homes, group excursions into the greater Grand Rapids community and each resident’s one-on-one outings with a staff member to do their favorite things, we work to create an environment conducive to providing quality, total-person care for those living and receiving services at David’s House.

 

LEAP

Life Enriching Activities and Programs. At David’s House, we want to provide meaningful activities and opportunities for our residents to engage with each other and with the community. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays we get together to learn new things and work on our health and well-being. These activities include exercising, working on cooking skills, learning Spanish, and giving back to the community by making cut and tie blankets, decorating bags for Kids’ Food Basket, stamping coffee sleeves for Roots Brew Shop, and more. We believe the residents who live at David’s House have gifts that should be shared with the community and that life-long learning improves quality of life.

COMMUNITY

Community is very important to us at David's House. Not just our David's House community, but the Greater Grand Rapids community. Many of our residents volunteer and work in the community on a regular basis at places like Beer City Dog Biscuits, CareLinc Medical Equipment, Grace's Table, and Chick-Fil-A!
