What is Tierra Village?
Tierra Village is a Leavenworth, Washington-based non-profit connecting special needs adults with nature and community. We specialize in residential, educational, and employment services. Coyote House Adult Family Home, the TRAILS Day Program, and Tierra Employment Services are the entities that make up Tierra Village. We’re committed to co-creating community with people of all abilities.
Coyote House Adult Family Home is the residential part of Tierra Village. Currently, Coyote House has 5 residents who live, work and play here full-time. We are actively looking for our sixth and final resident! Our cutting-edge care partners work with residents and their families to ensure awesome outcomes. As an organization, we promote an active, healthy lifestyle. Built with extreme care for fire-prevention, non-ambulatory access, and passive cooling, no detail has been overlooked to facilitate a vibrant, dynamic, functional home for our residents.
Tierra’s Recreation, Arts and Independent Life Skills—or TRAILS-- day program is the educational piece of Tierra Village. TRAILS currently serves 16 participants. In the classroom, participants learn about and practice life skills like personal safety, healthy snack making, money management, effective communication, and self-expression through the arts. Outside, leadership and skill development opportunities abound through participation in community outings, service projects, hikes, camping, rafting trips, and more. TRAILS is the only program of its kind in North Central Washington. We would love to expand TRAILS from Leavenworth, to Cashmere, Wenatchee, and beyond!
Tierra Employment Services provides the only employment supports and job coaching available in the Upper Wenatchee Valley. Our participants work in various locations such as grocery stores and preschools, ski areas and city parks. Many special needs adults go without the support, transportation, or tools to look for, secure, and succeed in employment. That’s where we come in. We coordinate and recruit employers and potential employment positions. We then work with every employer and employee after hire to ensure proper training, and continue to monitor attendance and performance on an ongoing basis.
Tierra Village builds vibrant community for our participants. The Wenatchee Valley has a world-class developmental disability community, and we’re extremely proud to be a small part of it. If you’d like more information about our programs or about how to get involved--either by supporting us financially, or by volunteering, please visit us in-person or at tierravillage.org. From all of us here at Tierra Village, thank you!
Tierra Village, co-creating community with people of all abilities!
