Narrative

Sunshine Village is a remarkable community where people with developmental disabilities are given opportunities for growth, outlets for creativity and the chance to discover their own niche. We support people of all ages through a wide range of programs that teach life skills, foster independence, promote wellness and give everyone the chance to realize their potential.

On any given day, we can be found gardening, doing yoga, working on resumes, conducting a science experiment, stitching a quilt, reviewing recipes or balancing our bank accounts. On other days, we might be going over workplace safety, taking pictures or discussing our most recent book club pick.

We’re able to do amazing things, thanks to the dedication and compassion of our stellar staff, more than 250 professionals who are focused on the goal of making every day a great day for the people we serve. Our staff recognizes the unique needs and personalities of each individual we work with, and we understand that one size, one lesson, one way of doing things does not fit all. We tailor our services to each individual’s needs, always to provide the appropriate amount of necessary, structured therapy while giving everyone room to grow and a chance to shine.

We offer five Mass Health-funded day programs to individuals 18 and older.These structured, therapeutic programs are focused on enhancing functional life skills. Individual plans address independent living and self-care areas of need, in addition to nurturing social and interpersonal skills. Clinical services provided include on-site nursing, master’s level clinicians, and indirect occupational, physical and speech therapies.

Services must be referred by Department of Developmental Services.
