creativeCreative Day Participants Give Back to their Community

Each week, adults from our Creative Day Care Program head to the Shepherd of the HIlls Humane Society to spend a few hours socializing the cats and dogs or even cleaning up a bit. It's community outreach activities like this that help our folks be a bit part of the larger community. Thank you to our community partners for letting us volunteer with you!
