The Garden Foundation, Created to Improve the Quality of Life for Las Vegas Adults with Disabilities, Now Open
The Garden Foundation
, a non-profit organization founded by Taylor Gardner to enhance the quality of life of adults with disabilities, is now open. Located at 7485 West Azure Drive, Suite 130, in Las Vegas, The Garden Foundation seeks to fill a void for special-needs adults who may struggle to find activities, educational programs and other services suited to their abilities. 

Inspired by her younger sister, Lindsay, who was born with Down Syndrome, Gardner felt driven to create The Garden Foundation when Lindsay was terminated from another local facility. Although it had provided services to her for 10 years, leadership cited an inability to continue to accommodate Lindsay’s needs, leaving her nowhere to go for the services and activities she had long enjoyed.

Gardner’s mission became creating a resource able to offer programs customized to each individual’s needs. No matter their abilities, clients at The Garden Foundation receive services designed to accommodate their unique interests, skills and goals. Programs help build self-confidence, assist clients in achieving developmental milestones and ultimately empower them to live fulfilling lives.

“Adults with special needs are no different than you or me—they each deserve to have a rich, rewarding life,” explains Gardner. “At The Garden Foundation, we encourage our clients to pursue their passions, develop friendships and live their lives in full bloom.”

Currently, The Garden Foundation offers the following services:

  • Day Programs, held Monday – Friday from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., allow clients to participate in a variety of activities centered on art, music, movement, community outings, life skills, dance, therapy and community service.
  • Family Concierge helps families of adults with disabilities make the transition from the school system to adulthood—a process that can otherwise be challenging. This service offers guidance on accessing funding resources, identifying appropriate programs and connecting with experts who can develop an action plan to meet the family’s needs.
  • Community Internships at The Garden Foundation are unmatched by any other program in Las Vegas. Rather than simply offering job placement in industries deemed “appropriate” for individuals with special needs, the foundation meets with each client to find out what their interests are. Partnering with area businesses of all varieties, The Garden Foundation’s internship program provides clients firsthand experience in the industry of their choice, while enabling them to develop skills, forge relationships and build confidence.
