FALLBROOK – D'Vine Path hosted their Neighborhood Open House June 4, inviting community members to tour the new facility, interact with students and staff, and learn about the many goals of the program. This event allowed around 100 attendees to feel fully immersed in the D'Vine Path experience.
The Open House offered Fallbrook residents a unique opportunity to visit the facility and learn more about it from D'Vine Path Executive Director Lenila Lingad Batali. Attendees learned about the different pathways in D'Vine Path, including the viticulture program, the culinary program, and the arts studio.
Staff and students were excited to welcome the community into their space and inform them about how the program has impacted them personally and professionally. Batali helped lead the tours and answered questions from attendees; she was grateful to have the opportunity to bond with the new neighbors and help teach them about D'Vine Path's mission.
"The staff and students greatly enjoyed meeting our new neighbors," said Batali. "It truly takes a village to maintain a program like this and we are so grateful for all of the support."
Attendee and longtime D'Vine Path supporter Firelli Pitters said she was ecstatic to attend the open house with her family and spend time getting to know the students in their new environment.
"D'Vine Path has made a lifelong impact on our two autistic sons who have been involved with D'Vine Path since its inception," said Pitters. "The new property is perfect for furthering their vision of changing the special needs world. We are honored and blessed to know the Batalis and all of the angels that run the program."
