Chandler Day Habilitation Program Center
Meeting participant's needs, desires and hopes to attain a meaningful and independent life are the heart of our Day Habilitation program. At Lochland, participants are provided with opportunities to realize success and become as independent as possible, with the freedom to make choices, voice opinions and develop their own identities.
The Greenhouse at Lochland has always been a central location for learning and fun. In 1936 and for many years the Greenhouse was used as a summer playhouse and learning center. Children came to play, learn skills, camp out in the summer and celebrate Halloween. Unfortunately the Greenhouse slowly fell to disrepair and due to safety reasons was eventually used only for specific limited events.
In 2005 the Board of Directors made a decision to renovate the dilapidated Greenhouse into a much needed administrative office area. Lochland was growing and evolving and required enhanced administrative oversight to continue this positive growth. However by 2009 the Board made another decision to convert the Greenhouse Administration Building into the Lochland Day Program Center and create a separate administrative area, this was one of the best decisions that could have been made. Lochland has now come full circle. In 1936 the Greenhouse was a place for learning and fun. In 2010 we're pleased to report the Greenhouse returned to its original status as a place for "learning and fun" now called Chandler Day Habilitation Program Center.
