Our Hearts are Full

Even during these very trying and unknown times, for many reasons – one thing we do know is that the Center is very fortunate! This past month your support has been more than we could have ever imagined. During the #GivingTuesdayNow campaign, that included the very generous $25,000 match from The Coleman Foundation, we raised over $55,000!! Thanks to all of our established donors, first time donors, staff, families, and board members! All of your support will continue to help The Center provide services in the community that we have been a part of for 72 years.

At this time, The Center is closed for any billing of services or having participants in the building through June 30th. Our amazing staff have been connecting with participants via zoom classes, phone calls and socially distant visits. We have even had a couple parades at the Center so everyone can see everyone’s smiling faces! They are all so missed!

Now more than ever, please reach out to all legislators or IDHS and share your story about how important Community Day Services are to your family, your community, or someone you love! If you need contact information please feel free to email me at pcarey@b-olsoncenterofhope.org

Stay Safe! Stay Well!
