For those individuals who have fully or partially retired from working, NEV offers The Living Center, a CBDS Retirement Program. Rooted in the philosophy that learning is a lifelong process and that all human beings have the need and ability to find fulfillment in life, regardless of age, activities for this group are truly centered on an individual’s interests, energy levels, and desires. We offer a rich variety of choices in the areas of fitness, art, swimming, music, volunteerism, and community involvement, all of which contribute to maintaining optimum health and wellness. In keeping with our highly individualized services, we offer Day Habilitation programs at two state-of-the- art facilities: the Efron Center for Enrichment and the Sollar Wellness Center. Both of these buildings were specifically designed to meet the needs of adults with developmental disabilities and offer many unique amenities. These highly interactive, yet structured programs involve activities that are designed to promote new skills and personal interests. Offerings are customized and based upon individual learning ability and specific therapeutic goals. Since its founding, New England Village has evolved into a vibrant inclusive community that fosters strong interpersonal relationships and encourages active participation in all aspects of local community life. We passionately believe that our neighborhoods become richer when people of all abilities interact with each other in meaningful ways. GOVERNANCE AND FUNDING Governed by a board of directors which is strengthened by the active participation of many NEV family members, New England Village is managed by an Executive Director and senior leadership. Its services and programs are funded through private fees, state agencies, including the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services, MassHealth, Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission, Massachusetts Commission for the Blind, private insurance companies and philanthropic gifts. New England Village is financially stable and will remain so over the long term due in part to The New England Village Endowment Fund, which continues to grow thanks to the generosity of many New England Village families and supporters. 7
