  • Living Independently

    Mark 2 Ministries provides rental housing for our Friends that desire to live at WFR, and the daily living supports that each individual needs to be independent in his/her home. Mark 2The supports provided to each Friend is based on an individual service plan that identifies the services each Friend receives. Each Friend has his/her own bedroom that can be decorated and furnished however the Friend would like. Each Friend is learning the skills needed to live independently and being provided supports such as: planning, preparing and serving nutritious meals, maintaining his/her private and shared spaces in their home, personal care, and laundry. Another aspect of living independently is learning how to live with roommates. This is an opportunity that many people with disabilities do not get, or do not get the support to learn how to build relationships. Our daily living coaches support our Friends to maintain their homes, make their homes comfy and welcoming, and help build relationships with roommates.

  • Meaningful Work

    Mark 2Each Friend that is supported by Mark 2 Ministries has the desire to work, learn new skills, and become the best that he/she can be. There are many types of jobs that our Friends do at WFR:  landscaping, making cookies for campers, making pizzas for the community, housekeeping, Lost and Found, delivering food baskets for guests, stocking truckloads of food in camp kitchens, fertilizing flowers, collecting trash, setting up chairs, and the list goes on and on.

    Our job coaches teach skills as simple as being on time to work and wearing the appropriate attire, to more complex things like how to see a job through from start to finish and technical skills. The role of the job coach is to support each individual in meeting his/her personal work goals and meeting the standards of quality and timeliness needed for each job.

  • Contributing to the Community

    Mark 2 Ministries believes that all people contribute to the community simply by being a part of it, participating in events, and helping create opportunities for interactions. Our Friends bring a joy, friendliness, and openness to those around them that most of us cannot. Each Friend that is supported by Mark 2 Ministries is provided support to participate in the community, as they choose, and to help host events in their homes and on their lawns, based on their individual needs. One of the favorite ways that our Friends enjoy hosting community events is by having BBQ's on the lawn of Mark 2. The Mark 2 staff help our Friends plan, host, and enjoy many events throughout the year.
