At The Verve Mar Vista house, our program includes resident chef internships, community meal preparation, and family dinners on a regular basis. Using fresh ingredients harvested from our very own sustainable garden, our residents have an active role in the meal from start to finish. We’ve found that in addition to the sense of accomplishment our residents get from enjoying a home-cooked meal with their community, this aspect of our program really allows the residents to form a deeper bond with each other and helps create the family unit that we value so much at Transcend.
At The Verve, we focus on helping our residents build life skills and hold themselves accountable. Learning to work alongside others as a member of a team is such an important part of developing an independent and self-sufficient life. Our emphasis on fellowship and structure helps our residents form a solid foundation of recovery, and ultimately, helps set them up for success in their future.
