Mission Statement

Participants receive experience and education in the arts – music, dance, drama, visual arts, and industrial arts – as a means of engaging with community in deep and meaningful ways. Participants embrace creativity as a vocation and produce works that bring joy to others.

Background Statement

Encore Programs, Inc. is the latest incarnation of an arts based therapuetic approach first founded and Services for the Disabled in Long Beach, CA more than 30 years ago.  Since that time Services for Disabled expanded to five satellite programs and was renamed, Arts 'n Services for Disabled until 2004 when the company was divided into two separate corporations in order to better serve populations with differing needs from both Orange and Los Angeles counties.  The Orange County organization is now called, Encore Programs, Inc., and is located within Huntington Beach near the Bolsa Ave and Springdale Street commercial and industrial parks.  We now serve approximately 75 clients with intellectual, emotional and physical disabilities (and often a combination of all three) from North Orange County.  We are the only site based program to offer therapuetic services in the form of individual and group counseling and therapy.

Impact Statement

Our most important accomplishments of the last three years include:
1.   Financial stability.  Five years ago we were looking at a bleak financial situation, in large part due to budget restrictions from the State reimbursement process and dwindling attendance.  However, since then we have met our census limits and attendance goals consistently over the past years to put us well into the black.  Significant contributions from grants and volunteer fundraisers have also provided us with the capital necessary to make building repairs and renovations.
2.   Our programs and services have grown to include more one-to-one and group counseling services in CAVA and vocational skills training in Encore.
3.   We have been fortunate to have a successful working partnership with Coastline Community College to provide arts education classes to our clients that would be unavailable otherwise.
 
Our goals for the future include:
1.   Inclusionary strategies and services that will allow clients to fully integrated into their communities via jobs training and support if they desire it or volunteer opportunities.
2.   We plan to build a case management program that will guide clients through their Individual Plan goals with greater participation, planning and accountability for their own decisions and choices.
3.   An expansion of services through greater cooperation and partnerships with community college services is also within reach and will support and compliment our inclusion services. 
 

Needs Statement

Our staffing needs are always paramont in our minds.  Unfortunately, finding highly qualified staff is a daunting task because the demands of the jobs are quite high and only those people who are highly motivated, emotionally centered and willing to commit to sometimes difficult situations are recruited.  To that end, finding the right balance of compensation for these qualified therapists and instructors within our limited resources can be challenging.  We are always seeking additional funding to enable us to compensate staff to the levels they deserve in order to attract and keep the best people.  
 
Despite those difficulties, we have been extremely fortunate in attracting good people for which we are eternally grateful.  It would be just and prudent, however, to be able to pay them what they are truly worth.

Programs


Encore

Encore is an arts-based day program for adults, 18 years of age and older, with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities.  Decades of evidence demonstrate that the creative arts are especially suited for instruction and learning and can help pave the way for full community inclusion.  The Encore staff includes degreed/credentialed instructors who work with clients through music, visual and fine arts, language arts, wellness and active classes, technology and industrial arts.  Encore concentrates upon the personal development of each participant in support of his or her goals of self-reliance and independence.  Participants are supported in self-care, social and leadership skills, personal responsibility, and vocational readiness.
Budget  500,000.00

Population Served People/Families with People of Developmental Disabilities People/Families with of People with Psychological Disabilities
Program Short-Term Success  Community outings is first on our list.  This may require the purchase or lease of a vehicle to accomodate wheelchairs and the hiring of additional staff for transportation and chaperone services.
Program Long-Term Success  Our ultimate goal is to provide as much inclusionary opportunities as possible in the surrounding communities for our clients.  Whether these opportunities take the form of employment, volunteer services or simply an increased ability to utilize community resources is something that continues to change and evolve depending upon the motivation of clients and the dedication of staff.
Program Success Monitored By  Our working relationship with the Regional Center of Orange County requires regular tracking and reporting on each individual program plan for our clients.
Examples of Program Success  Recently, one of our highly functioning clients became our first to be hired at a local hospital for janitorial duties.  He starts in late June, 2019, so as of this writing we haven't any progress report to submit.  We can say that much of the training for interviewing and job coaching happened in classes designed to allow him to learn and make presentations to his peers, practice in drama classes that gave him greater self-confidence and improved his language skills.  As an unanticipated benefit the client also revealed great enthusiasm for performance in comedic sketches.

CAVA

CAVA supports adults who are dual-diagnosed with both intellectual disabilities and a co-occurring psychiatric disorder or emotional health issue/crisis.  Clients must be able to participate in and benefit from psychotherapy.  CAVA accepts individuals throughout Southern California.

The staff at CAVA include credentialed therapists and teachers.  We also work closely with California State and UC university systems’ Schools of Social Work graduate programs to host interns each academic year. The staff at CAVA provide individual and group therapy and encourage independence through self-care, social and leadership skills, as well as personal skills in assertiveness, personal judgment, and accountability. Specific empirically-based therapeutic modalities are used to maximize successful outcomes. If a participant’s long-term goal is employment, he or she can work on skills that are transferable to a vocational setting.  Many CAVA clients work or have worked in the past and are either retired or aspire to return to the workplace.  CAVA’s therapeutic support aims to reduce incidences of hospitalization and increase quality of life by addressing clinical issues before they erupt into crises.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy (sometimes called “psychotherapy” or “counseling”) is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a mental health therapist in a safe, caring, and confidential environment to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change. People seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges/stressors or childhood trauma, to dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge. A client and therapist may work together for as few as five or six sessions or as long as several years, depending on the client’s unique needs and personal goals for therapy.

Program Long-Term Success 
Anger Management — this class teaches methods for putting out the fire of anger and replacing it with compassionate communication with the self. Clients learn to view anger in a new light, and embrace it with mindfulness techniques.
 
Women’s and Men’s Groups
Our therapists determine the needs of the members and guide themed discussions.
Self-Care
Focus topics in this class relate to self-care, which is activities of compassionate focus on ones own well-being that increase one’s quality of life.
Life Skills
Clients learn and practice such skills as budgeting, social skills, money management, hygiene, maintaining good health, effective communication, and other related topics.
Healthy Relationships
Clients work on mastering emotions by gaining an understanding on what the five basic emotions are trying to communicate, leading to more effective interpersonal relationships through clarity of feelings, wants, and needs. This class emphasizes listening and mindfulness as techniques for creating stronger relationships and win-win agreements.
 
Program Success Monitored By  Regional Center of Orange County works closely through their service coordinators and our therapuetic staff to monitor and assess client progress on a semi-annual basis.
Examples of Program Success  Even some clients who have severe physical and emotional limitations have benefited from our therpuetic based approach to individual growth and have shown great progress in managing their living situations better, their relationships with family and friends, and their prospects for greater involvement in the larger communities in which they thrive.  In several similar situations, clients have been able to deal with difficult relationships in group homes by choosing to move or to confront these difficult relationship head-on once having learned a degree of self-mastery over their emotional pressures and stressors.
