Accomplishments

We were able to accomplish a lot of great things so far this year

We received notice that we were reaccredited by EAGLE. EAGLE is the only faith-based accreditation that focuses on the ministry of children and adults. For more information on EAGLE, click here to view their website.

We also passed our Medicaid Health Survey and Life Safety Survey and we had our 3-year licensure renewed in May!

Our individuals both in the Care Center and Community Services are thriving in their jobs in the community as well as in their day programs.

We celebrated graduation for the last time in a while this year at the Care Center. We had four individuals graduate from high school in May!
