PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

VISITING THE NORTH POLE



Adult program participants at our ICAN program visited the North Pole this month. Santa's Workshop at the North Pole in Colorado Springs  graciously donates admission tickets to our organization for adult program participants to attend the themed family amusement park.  Everyone always has a great time enjoying the rides and participating in  a fun community activity.  The goal of our ICAN program is to  help our adult participants gain useful life skills and become more independent in their daily lives.  Doing these types of activities encourage self-expression and growth.  For more information about our ICAN program, contact Joni Edmisten at 719-634-4675.
CHURCH GROUP SINGS AT ADULT SERVICES




Thanks Dove Desert United Methodist Church Group from Glendale, Arizona for singing to both our ICAN group and Joey's Place adult participants.  This fantastic music ministry travels to various organizations sharing their talents with others.  http://www.doveofthedesert.com/MusicMinistry
