Two weeks prior to each session, an ingredient/supply list will be emailed to the participants so that they have time to prepare for the session. Then during the session, all participants will make the same dish together virtually!

June 15th – Cannoli, Italian dessert

July 20th – Spanish Tostadas, Spanish breakfast

August 17th – Tzatziki with Pita, Greek appetizer

There are several ways to pay for enrollment in Woodlands programs. The Woodlands understands the costs involved in living with disability or chronic illness and will never deny participation for lack of ability to pay program fees. Here are some options for payment and financial assistance:

Participants paying directly and privately will be invoiced following the enrollment process. Payment may be made to The Woodlands by check or any major credit card.

There are many options for payment assistance. The Woodlands highly recommends the Allegheny Family Resource Guide for a listing of alternate funding sources which can be found HERE.

The Woodlands actively fundraises throughout the year to support scholarships including the WonderFund. The WonderFund enables individuals with financial need to participate in Woodlands activities and ensures that no family will be turned away from programming due to inability to pay. The Woodlands encourages participants not utilizing waiver funding to apply for third party assistance prior to applying for a WonderFund scholarship.

Completion of this application does not imply or guarantee a WonderFund award. Awards are made first on the basis of funds available, and second on the basis of verified need. WonderFund awards will be distributed according to each particular need/scenario. Applications submitted will be reviewed and processed on a rolling basis throughout the year. An application for assistance from The WonderFund may be requested at time of enrollment.
