The Options program is one of several programs of the Threshold offering “Choice” to individuals; choice to enjoy leisure activities or work on skill-building activities.
The amount of time spent in activities is determined by input from the person and their family members or guardian.
With 44 activities offered and a 95% overall client satisfaction rate, the Options program has proven very successful!
“This has been an outstanding program for my son. He has actually grown because of the Options Program by exposing him to working with others, observing others, and learning proper methods of responding to conflict. He is so excited about Options.”
Do members have to attend all 5 days of the work week?
We have many individuals that attend on a limited basis. The program goal is about helping each person achieve what they are ready to achieve.
What activities are taking place in the program room?
There is a variety of recreational, skill building and community activities happening in our area. In Options, individuals get the opportunity to cook full meals, practice difficult social situations in a controlled setting in our role-play class, relax in our stress management class, discuss community employment issues in our career exploration class, or work up a sweat in our daily exercise classes.
What type of activities take place in the community?
We have trekked north to the Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame, slid south to Discovery World in Milwaukee, toured several local, and not-so-local Museums, took Sled Dog Rides at Siberian Outpost, and we offer many other fun-filled and educational adventures.
Is this just an arts and crafts program?
Absolutely not! We encourage participation in multiple community activities, and folks in the program are provided an opportunity to volunteer in the community each month. This is a great way to help individuals learn social skills and problem-solving techniques.
