Our Community Work & Service Program is rooted in the healing power of social engagement and being a part of a community. Working on crews alongside their peers and a leader from the staff, residents dedicate 15-20 hours a week to purposeful work, contributing to daily life at CooperRiis. For some, it’s the first time being part of a team where others depend on them. This experience offers an opportunity for our residents to be a part of something bigger than themselves, enjoy how meaningful it can be to give back.
COVID-19 has affected many aspects of our program; our CWS Crews continue to actively engage in animal care, gardening, greenhouse horticulture, cooking, creative activities, or woodworking.
