We encourage our community to stay home (whenever possible) and stay safe throughout the COVID-19 outbreak. We now offer most of our outpatient, early intervention, and case management services via telemedicine so you can receive the support you need from the safety of your home.

Our committee and board meetings and facilities tour for April have been canceled. Our day support programs are suspended temporarily.

Our popular plant sale is continuing but with some changes to ensure everyone's safety. Please order ahead and your plants will be waiting for you when you drive up.
