Thanks for the Halloween fun!
SMCR went virtual for some FUN and FUND-raising! We partnered with The Playful Parent and Texas Roadhouse for an "all-ages-welcome" Costume Photo Contest. Members joined us for an evening of Zoom which streamed live to Facebook! A great time was had by all.
Photos were entered into four "Peoples' Choice" categories of Cutest, Most Creative, Creepiest, and Best Resemblance. Prizes were also awarded for the "Judges' Choice" Best Overall category determined strictly by our panel of judges. Stay tuned for an announcement of the winners!
SMCR is a private non-profit organization that promotes the inclusion of persons with developmental differences into the life of our community. We advocate for individuals with special needs, to recognize the inherent dignity that is theirs because they are members of our one human family. We promote social, recreational and educational opportunities in which individuals with developmental differences can contribute their unique gifts and develop their potential.
SMCR provides its members with social, educational and recreational programs that go beyond inclusion to incorporate people with developmental differences into the life of the larger community. SMCR programs are designed to first prove the concept that persons with disabilities can succeed in challenging activities in new settings, such as a cooking class in a commercial kitchen or a movement class in a for-profit gym. Then each program offers the SMCR member the opportunity to grow from competence to community involvement.
SMCR has a broad vision of how communities and persons with developmental differences can live, work, play and learn together. We implement that vision at the personal level, one person at a time, because each person's needs and dreams matter. We hope to continue to grow so that we may touch the lives of more people in our community.Meet SMCR
