Woodview has worked with two counties to convert Rule 36 intermediate care facilities to other residential facilities. One such facility now serves as a Board and Lodge in the Brainerd area, as well as a two bed crisis unit for persons experiencing mental health symptoms. The other facility is in Wadena and has been converted to a four bed foster care home on the main floor, two transitional apartments on the second floor and a peer center in the lowest level.
Woodview currently sponsors or has sponsored in the past both activity groups and support groups. Our support groups have focused on general living skills, mental health maintenance, budgeting, relationships, alcohol and drug education and Egala. Our activity groups have centered on cooking, music, crafts and other client interests. Currently, we offer: Wise Women, Creative Cookers, The Woodview Boys, Woodview Choir, Ensemble Group, Guitar Lessons, Acorn (Children’s Group), teen groups, music & movement and Woodview Bowlers.
