Our Special Needs Fellowship creates a beloved community for adults with different mental and physical challenges from group homes in north-central Connecticut. It's a place where everybody knows your name! The fellowship meets on the second Monday of the month from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, September to June. We begin by singing folk and spiritual songs. This is followed by crafts or some other activity and finally a round of healthy snacks and drinks. At its best, the fellowship enables us to see far beyond disabilities to the beautiful people within. We hope to create a community of dignity where all are welcome and cherished.

VOLUNTEERING: From time to time singing groups, Santa Claus, a clown or magician donate their talents to bring some extra joy. Occasionally we also need mature, patient and compassionate volunteers (ages 13 to adult) to assist with singing, crafts, snacks and just having a good time.
