“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow”
And so it is at New Danville. Although we are not planting a garden, although we really do have a great vegetable garden, our garden consists of the beautiful people we serve. Much like the flowers and trees we see blossoming, each of our adults is a unique, one of a kind, and ready to bloom.
These past five months, New Danville has seen a rapid growth in the number of clients we serve. Like flowers popping up everywhere, so is our enrollment in the day program. Since March, we have added eleven new participants to the program, and a few more are due to come in June-July. This is one of the fastest growth rates I have seen in my five years here. At the core of this growth is the quality of the program we have.
Summertime is an active and joyous time at New Danville. Not only does it bring new clients through our summer program, opened to students 16 years old and up throughout the Montgomery County area, but it also brings new and fun activities. Coming up in June is “Water Day,” a fun-filled day with water slides, dunking booth, and many other activities. We will also have an outdoor fun day with games and treats, among many other activities.
The Summer Program for older students in high school will run through July 29th from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. This is a wonderful way for students nearing their transition to get an idea of what a day program is all about. Although we welcome all, slots are limited. If you are interested in the program or know someone that might benefit from it, please visit our website and contact us to set up a visit.
As reflected in the quote above, our program is our garden. We believe in our program, in the adults that we serve, and in the promise of tomorrow.
