Come join us for the first self-advocacy meeting! At this meeting we are looking for people that want to be involved in creating this group from the ground up. This will be a social group that helps its members gain confidence in speaking up for the things that are important to them.

Holiday Giving Program | November - December

Several years ago we created a Holiday Giving Program, to allow us to help as many people as possible have a happier holiday season. Among the many individuals we serve, there are a number of parents who are financially unable to make this holiday season special for their children. During the holiday season many CCDS staff participate in our Holiday Giving Program through a variety of ways; from adopting a family or individual from our Holiday Giving Tree to helping wrap and drop off gifts! For more info please contact Marissa VanDenburgh or Kathleen Pivacek.
