Thanks to everyone who bought Little Ceasar's Pizzas during the State of Washington Combined fund drive, The Arc of Grays Harbor was presented with a generous donation by representatives from the local DSHS office!
The Arc of Grays Harbor offers two wonderful and valuable programs on the third Thursday of each month; the ICAN lifeskills program and Parent-to-Parent. Both are conveniently offered here at our office at 523 West First Street.
Parent to parent is a peer networking opportunity for parents of children with developmental disabilities to share experiences, information and enables those of us who have been there to act as mentors.
The ICAN club is an fun and educational group designed to help those of us who can use some skill building in areas of budgeting, cooking, self-help and independence.
Everyone is invited, give us a call at 360 537 7000 to learn about the topic of the day!
Just wanted to boast about how incredible everyone did during the basketball tournament this last weekend in Bremerton...
All of the participants did really well, everyone played like aces, and the best part was we all had fun!
Our unified team (unified - includes persons without disabilities who compete as partners/team mates in sporting events), played hard and their teamwork was superb! They definitely played awesome basketball out there!
Our A team placed 3rd out of 12 teams(WTG), and played until they looked like they were ready to drop. While the individual skills athletes brought home 4 silver medals and 1 gold medal.
OVERALL, THE TOURNAMENT WAS A SMASHING SUCCESS AND I CAN'T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN NEXT YEAR!!
WAY TO GO HAWKS AND PANTHERS! Another great season!! Keep it up!
As you may have noticed, the Arc of Grays Harbor has moved to 523 West First Street, Aberdeen WA 98520.
I want to talk about the reasons for that move.
First, the Arc of Grays Harbor has traditionally been an agency of the county department of Health as a provider of information and referral services. Because of funding changes, we must diversify our services.
Second, we see a big unmet need for people with disabilities in lifeskills training and a place for meetings and informal events.
