    We have been asked to help circulate a brief survey on Western Mass residents utilization of social media. The hope is to achieve a broad response across age, gender, location, and interests to help us understand how people in Western Mass use social media. We would appreciate your help in sharing this survey with your networks.

    The more robust we share and encourage people to take the survey, the more meaningful the results! The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and participants will be eligible to win an iPad PRO as a thank you for taking the time to complete: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/wmasssocial

    • About

      Since its founding in 1967, Sunshine Village has helped individuals with developmental disabilities, including those on the autism spectrum, lead rich, meaningful lives with thriving, vibrant programs. Each day, hundreds of adults and their families connect, learn, and contribute to develop life skills, enhance social skills, improve coping strategies, and increase their independence.

      With a main campus in Chicopee and additional sites in Chicopee, Springfield, Three Rivers and Westfield, a range of day programs and employment services are offered. Medically-based day habilitation programs incorporate physical and occupational therapies into music, culinary, art and sport therapy programming to achieve personalized goals. Employment services engage business partners to help participants prepare to work in industrial and commercial settings. The community-based day services program offers a strength-based approach to community integration with unique experiences and skill-building opportunities to tap into everyone’s potential.

      As a nonprofit organization, state, federal and private funding are received to further the mission. All programs are accredited at the highest level by The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, CARF International (CARF). As an employer of choice in the community, employees enjoy generous compensation and benefits, including opportunities for leadership development.

      Sunshine Village enhances the lives of individuals with disabilities by turning small moments into great days-where everyone shines!
