High Point Village now offering ‘Dream Big’ Program

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

(Press Release)

Starting Tuesday, September 4, High Point Village will broaden the range of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (known as “Villagers”) it serves in the West Texas community. The organization’s programs will expand to include Dream Big, which caters to Villagers aged 18 years and older who need more individualized assistance.

Jordan Dotson, who has been a Reach High Coordinator for High Point Village for the past year, will be transitioning into the role of Dream Big Coordinator.

“My wife, Stephanie, and I had always dreamed of a place that Abby, Stephanie’s late sister who had severe intellectual and developmental disabilities, would love and share in community.” said Dotson. “When I began working here in 2017, Dream Big was an idea. Abby’s legacy has been my driving force behind helping to build this program into a place where people can come and feel loved and included.”

In the Dream Big program, Villagers will work on sensory integration, task-oriented learning, musical enrichment, as well as some of the core activities Villagers in High Point Village’s flagship program Reach High participate in such as art, fitness, life skills and bible study. The ratio in these classrooms will be one staff member for every three Villagers. So far, three Villagers are enrolled for the program, but it is expected to grow to six Villagers by the end of this year.
