Shining for 52 Years!

Spring is on its way! We've had a very busy winter, but we are ready to let the Sun SHINE!

To celebrate Valentine's Day, we held our annual "Love Yourself First" Fashion Show ! We're also enjoying volunteering at local senior centers and food pantries to give back and connect with our community. We recently started African Drumming and Dancing for a great sensory, cultural and fitness experience. With a generous donation from PeoplesBank , we purchased new iPads to upgrade the technology in our programs.

We're already planning community visits to celebrate April as Autism Awareness Month, so stay tuned. You can also come see us shine at upcoming transition fairs or schedule a tour to see our great days in action. We hope to see you soon!

Have a great day!
