Our Newsletter is packed this month here is a bit of the Executive Directors letter (Adam.) “In March we celebrated 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.
