You Can Help

The pandemic has kept us apart & inside for too long so we're taking advantage of the summer sun to host a fun-filled day with games, good food, dancing, & friends. SummerFest will be the first time that many of the people we support are able to get together and celebrate since the COVID shutdowns. Please support SummerFest today!
