Sunshine Center partners with The University of Texas Medical Branch through their Occupational Therapy and Psychology Programs, as well as the Community Health Nursing Program. Sunshine's clients receive the benefits of occupational therapy and psychological development onsite while providing training for UTMB students. Student nurses instruct our clients on personal hygiene, nutrition, health and safety.
Sunshine collaborates with the Bay Area Council Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of San Jacinto, with our own Boy Scout Troop 190 and Girl Scout Troop 26997. Our scouts enjoy many scout activities, helping with fundraisers, and interacting with other troops.
Sunshine's Day Habilitation clients look forward each week to each week's art experience in a joint effort with the Galveston Art Center's Arts for All Program. They send a student volunteer to teach different art techniques to our individuals, helping bring out their creative side while improving their fine motor skills.
Sunshine coordinates with Galveston Independent School District to ease student transition from high school. We allow students who are over 18 years old and in Special Education to attend our Day Habilitation Program during part of their school day.
