On Thursday, June 8, Chesterbrook Residences, an assisted living community that serves students aged 18-22 years with disabilities in Fairfax, put on a celebration to recognize the achievement of some of the students from The Davis Center. The Davis Center is a school whose goal is to serve students who require instruction through life and career skills. This is not the first time that the students have paid a visit to Chesterbrook. As a matter of fact, the students visit the community on a frequent basis.
Students attend Chesterbrook Residences five days a week for four hours each to work alongside with the staff from Chesterbrook. The students have been known to help with multitude of different tasks such as cleaning, ensuring that everything is in order and virtually anything else that the staff or residents need help with. Even though Chesterbrook has gained plenty of benefits from having the students around, the graduates will be carrying on the skills and experience that picked up while on the job for the rest of their lives.
The life and work skills that students acquired while attending Chesterbrook will help them to make independent livings and allow them to lead productive lives of their own. The community’s support means a great deal to the faculty and students, and a special thanks is extended to the area’s residents, who have all helped the students to gain the tools necessary to go off into the real world and seek the paid employment that they’ve strived for ever seince they first started at Chesterbrook.
