The Montvale PBA Annual 5K and Family Fun Walk was held on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at 9 AM. The Family Fun Walk raised $10,000 for the Milestones @ PVR program.

Milestones @ PVR is a special program for adult students, ages 18-21, with multiple intellectual and moderate learning and language disabilities. The program is designed to assist students with disabilities to develop the skills necessary for independent living. Milestones @ PVR provides transition-focused services within a community environment based on each student’s needs and goals. Students build psychological, problem solving, critical thinking, personal and interpersonal skills and vocational readiness.

Representatives from the Montvale PBA presented a $10,000 check to students in our Milestones Program and Pascack Valley Regional staff.

 A simulated apartment setting provides the optimal learning environment for students to acquire and perform independent living skills. Students complete weekly chores, grocery shop, plan and prepare meals, maintain the household budget, learn to travel and organize personal calendars.

The program is based in Hillsdale and is supported by the Pascack Valley Regional School District. The four municipalities of Montvale, Hillsdale, River Vale and Woodcliff Lake have had students in the program.
