September 13th. is closing in on us, and we are very excited to announce that this day has been designated as Nevins Day by the City of Charlotte! A proclamation has been awarded to Nevins for 60 years of service in Mecklenburg County, and we want to share it with you all of you. We will have guests of honor, but more importantly we invite all parents, guardians, group homes, providers and stakeholders to help us celebrate this special day.
Nevins was founded in 1959 by a group of parents who were determined to improve the quality of life for their developmentally disabled children as they grew into adulthood. Fighting against the trend to institutionalize, the group started a school for vocational and recreational training, including the first direct service training center in the Carolinas. Nevins has certainly come a long way through the years, and we look forward to celebrating this special day with all of you.
– Adam Lawlor, Executive Director
