Located in a Snoezelen equipped room, various lighting effects, textures, sounds, and smells create a multi-sensory environment. The term "Snoezelen" (pronounced /'snuz?l?(n)/) is a blend of the Dutch "snuffelen" (to snuggle, also: to sniff) and "doezelen" (to doze, to snooze).

“We have been privileged to see the unmistakable imprint of God’s hand at work in their (our) lives through the day program and all those engaged in the mission of VNU. They are all feeling they are a part of the community and not just outsiders. The level of activity they are exposed to outside VNU while being chaperoned has been very impacting for them and exciting for us to watch. They will light up when we all go somewhere they have already experienced, telling us of their great adventure. We are so thankful for all efforts brought to bear in our adult children’s lives.”

-With grateful hearts and in Christian love, Harold and Judi Willemstyn
