It seems like just last week that we celebrated our 25th Anniversary. These last five years have flown by and the older I get the faster the years fly. Five years ago we still resided at 3100 Clarendon Blvd., a great location, but a rent increase made it a lot less attractive. 

In 2012 we will be celebrating our 30th Anniversary. We’ve begun planning for three separate events over the course of this year. The present plans entail a Founders Reception/Open House in April, a 5K or 10K race this summer, and in the fall we are planning for a 30th Anniversary Gala celebration. 

We enter our 30th year expanding programs and providing increased services to people with disabilities. Recently ECNV qualified to become an Employment Network and will be providing support services in getting people with disabilities into the workforce. We have also redoubled our efforts with the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program to assist those who wish to move from institutions into the community. We have just completed a two year demonstration grant to provide Travel Training (bus and rail) to people with disabilities. It’s a valuable program that we are actively seeking funding to continue and we believe we have been successful in acquiring it. Go to http://www.ecnv.org to learn about the Travel Training program and other programs and services. 

As we hold events this year, please join us. As we continue our mission of empowering others with disabilities, be our support in whatever means possible.  

A Happy New Year to all.
