Just in time for the holiday gift giving season the DTA Skills Training participants created a Holiday Market of hand-crafted home décor items available for purchase.

Our very own Direct Support Provider (DSP) Carlos Garcia, spearheaded the Holiday Skills Training Project which provided valuable life skills such as patience and team work while creating holiday gifts for friends and family.
