Description of Service
Fairweather Lodge is a home where individuals establish their own support system which enables them to live independently in the community. Lodge members meet together regularly as a group where they develop problem-solving skills, living skills, leadership skills, and develop group decision making. They also work in the Lodge business, earning an income and making decisions for the business.
Lodge members receive support from Lodge Coordinators who act in an advisory capacity, giving advice, teaching skills, providing information, offering employment assistance, and providing limited transportation services. The Lodge Coordinators work with Lodge members for 40 hours a week and are also available on-call 24 hours per day.
New Visions has Fairweather Lodges in Newport, Carlisle, Shippensburg, and Chambersburg.
