Adults with developmental disabilities rarely get to socialize with people outside of their immediate family. This contributes to a strong sense of loneliness and isolation. Because of this, activities where they can be around kind, friendly people are extremely important to their well-being. Dancing can be therapy in itself by providing them with movement, laughter, and a high-energy atmosphere. So, let's give them a night to remember!
WHAT: March is National Developmental Disabilities Awareness month, so we are collaborating with the Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities to host a spring dance! To get everyone excited about the Cleveland Indians Opening Day, we will be celebrating with a fun baseball theme. Volunteers will help with a variety of activities, such as craft stations, putting on temporary baseball tattoos, welcome party and hand out raffle tickets, serving food to guests, and being on the dance committee!
