HE GRADUATED LAST YEAR AND IS NOW WORKING AT GIANT. "Working with other people helps us get into the workforce." ABOUT 50 STUDENTS GO TO VITAL HOUSE EACH DAY FOR 4 HOURS AFTER SCHOOL. THESE STUDENTS HAVE DIFFERENT DISABILITIES. BUT HERE THEY LEARN TO BE MORE INDEPENDENT...AND DO THINGS LIKE MANAGE CHECKING ACCOUNTS AND GET GROCERIES. "Our work here is not paperwork. It`s look at our work...we cook the meal, we clean the house, we settle for a gathering." Says Bernadette Jespersen, a VITAL House Teacher ÂTHE STUDENTS ARE BETWEEN 18 AND 21 YEARS OLD AND ARE USUALLY LEAVING HIGH SCHOOL. VITAL HOUSE IS HERE TO MAKE THE TRANSITION EASIER, AND AT THIS OPEN HOUSE STUDENTS` PARENTS SEE WHAT THE WORK IS ALL ABOUT. SOMETIMES THE PARENTS ARE STUNNED BY THE SELF-SUFFICIENCY.
