Golf Outing – Our annual golf outing is held in late September at Idlewild Country Club. This event is the perfect opportunity to spend one more day on the links before putting your clubs away for the season. The outing includes a barbeque lunch on the terrace, 18 rounds of best ball golf and games, and dinner.

winetastingWine Tasting – Our annual wine tasting is held at Old Plank Trail Community Bank in Crete.  A variety of premiere wines are featured from top vineyards around the world.  Guests receive tastings from each of these wines, a complimentary wine glass, and a limited selection of hors d’oeuvres.

 

Family Support Group Meetings – Our monthly Family Support Group Meetings began in response to the frustrations expressed by families and guardians about the lack of resources available for sound decision-making, especially for those with loved ones transitioning out of high school. These meetings are designed to prepare parents and guardians for the next chapter in their child’s life. It is free and open to the public so that all families and guardians, not just those we serve, feel confident that they’re making the best decisions possible when it comes to their loved one’s quality of life today and well into the future.
