April 2018 Nevins Newsletter! March was Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month and Nevins had the opportunity to celebrate and showcase our commitment to providing quality services and educating others on the opportunities that Nevins has to offer. Nevins attended the Metro School and East Mecklenburg Transitional Fairs, and these two events offered options for families and the support they need for post-secondary success for students needing ongoing services. We look forward to connecting with the families again in the future! Our 2nd Annual Chili-Cook off was a huge success! Thank you to everyone that came out to support Nevins, and thank you to our Nevins team, Rudy, Gail and Delores for a near perfection chili they prepared. $1,300 was raised, and this will help fund our 1st. Annual beach trip to Myrtle Beach for our staff and individuals that Nevins supports on May 4-6. Download the whole Newsletter here!

Happy Holidays! This is the time of year I especially look forward to being here at Nevins! Every day is a celebration, but as the holidays approach it always brings a smile to my face seeing the excitement and joy come out of everyone. I think highlighting our current employment and opportunities that Nevins has established is appropriate for me to bring to everyone’s attention. Over the past year our Supported Employment Program has had significant growth. Jonathan Martin and his staff have worked very hard finding successful employment in the community for our individuals we serve . . . For More Download the whole newsletter here!
The flu season is starting and will last through the fall and winter. More than one kind of flu virus will be spreading this season, including seasonal flu and the 2009 H1N1 flu. If you get the flu, you can get sick and can spread the flu to others at home, at work and in the community. If you don’t feel well, please stay home. It is important to remember to cover your coughs and sneezes and wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand cleaner if soap and water are not available. Please educate the individuals we serve to do the same. Download the November Newsletter here!
