Programs: The majority of Ridge residents attend a Day Program, five days a week (with transportation provided or arranged by The Ridge). These programs are varied and depend on the level of physical and mental function of each individual and include: volunteering (sorting and bagging food items at local homeless shelters or churches); working (for local companies, sorting or assembling products); or attending classroom situations that teach life skills such as effective communication and acceptable public behavior and offer arts and crafts to encourage self expression, or games and gardening for fun. The Ridge also teaches life skills training to six adults living on their own in Riverside County, ranging in age from 21 to 57. Enjoying life and having fun are priorities at The Ridge. Some of the programs and activities offered regularly include: physical fitness; aqua aerobics; equestrian programs; amusement park visits; bowling; church services; and bingo.

In 1949, Mary and Robert Jeffery, were blessed with a son whose name is Roger. Roger was not like other little boys his age. He was special because his body and mind did not develop as quickly as other children. Realizing his need for special care, his parents decided to make the best of the situation. They wanted to provide Roger with an education and training at a level which he could understand in order to better function in society, and they did want to place Roger in a state hospital, the only alternative available at that time.Peppermint Ridge is a living, loving, laughing, learning community, which nurtures every member and encourages each one to become more self-sufficient and responsible.
