60 Years of Creating Opportunities

It was in 1959 that a group of parents of disabled adult children formed a special school to help teach and care for their loved ones by providing a safe environment to learn the skills each of them needed to better participate and contribute to the success of the Charlotte region.  It is on this foundation that we have built a 60 year history of providing the best support for the disabled community in the Charlotte area. We had an amazing time at our 60th Celebration in November follow this link to see all about it! Please consider donating $60 for 12 months honoring 60 years of Nevins creating opportunities for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. – $60 for 12 months, $180 quarterly, $720 one-time.

September Newsletter 2019

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 […]
