NSSA Adult Service Clients create “Piece of Hope” products

i Feb 9th No Comments by


NSSA Adult Service clients have a new project – they have been creating the “Piece of Hope” product line, which consists of an all organic Body Butter & Body Scrub. The production of this product gives each of our Adult clients an opportunity to learn new skills and utilize individual strengths, while being a productive member of a team.

Skills they are learning and utilizing include:

  • Pouring and mixing
  • Units of measure
  • Monitoring time
  • Packaging and labeling
  • Identification and proper use of utensils and appliances
  • Taking turns and waiting
  • Asking for assistance
  • Independently initiating tasks
  • Set up and clean up
  • Taking inventory

These skills help foster independence, confidence and pride. While photographing them in action last week, one client proudly stated “I can do this by myself,” and there were many big smiles around the worktable.

Body Butter and Body Scrubs are available now by placing an order with Christine MacPherson at cmacpherson@nssa.net. Click here for ordering and pricing information.
