New Life Skills 201 Program

Hi all, Jaycie here! Just wanted to post a little update about our new connection with the Peace Center at Capital Christian Center. They are teaching a brand new Life Skills 201 Program exclusively for Quixote Village residents! Their staff came and presented the program to our residents and got feedback about what they’d like to learn about. It’s a personalized program just for QV! Our residents will be learning about:

  • Personal Fitness
  • Community Fitness
  • Nutrition
  • Cooking from the garden (garden to table)
  • Finance and budgeting
  • Time management
  • Resume Building
  • Job Interviewing
  • and anything in between!

We are so excited about this new partnership. We just had our first class last night and it went great! Each resident has their own Life Coach that will help them with the curriculum. It was great to see everyone learning from each other. I really want to give a big THANK YOU to the Peace Center and all of the volunteer life coaches. I’m excited to see where this partnership will go and the bond it will create on our community. Enjoy the pictures below! 🙂

May 20 Garden Updates

UPDATE February 2018: If you would like to help us with our garden for the 2018 season please donate here.

We are SOOO thankful for the lovely Jill Severn! She donated some cinder blocks and beauty bark for our garden. Not only did she do that but she invited a bunch of her friends and neighbors to help put it all together! It was such a beautiful day today – perfect for a garden work party! Residents, staff, board members, and community members came together to work on our new garden beds. It was a fun time with a rockin’ pizza party at the end. I’ve uploaded some of our hard work (well, I mostly just took pictures and kept spraying everyone down with sunblock). We’ve created multiple beds with walkways big enough for our wheel barrows. We had a student from Seattle University come down to do an interview and he ended up working on the garden with us – thanks Jamoral! We’re going to start planting next!
