Monthly Meetings and Outings

 


Next Monthly Meeting on August 22,2014.

Pizza and Ice Cream Party

Come to the DSAGR August Monthly Meeting and view the VCU Documentary Film about Down syndrome and learn about housing opportunities from the Meacham family!!

Last year, DSAGR received a community grant from VCU to participate in a documentary film about Down syndrome (DS). The film is almost complete and will be shown at the August meeting. The children will participate in an art program, led by Amy Bravo, one of our members. The finished product will be available for sale at our auction, Sept. 13, at Salisbury Country Club.    

 

Presentation Topic: Housing Options – Travels with the Meachams as They Explore Various Options

Join Board Member and self-advocate, Anne Meacham and her parents Marybeth and Charles as they present highlights of their visits to various housing communities in Kansas, Missouri and Indiana. They will provide a slideshow and answer questions that you may have about the various models, what Friends of L’Arche Central Virginia is presently doing, and what possibly opportunities may exist for DSAGR to interface with L'Arche and the Faison Residence.

The Meachams had the opportunity to visit the Mission Project (located in Mission, KS) and the Community Living Opportunities (CLO) area in Lawrence KS. The CLO model is being emulated in Richmond, Virginia by the Faison Residence (an offshoot of the Faison School for Autism).In addition they visited a L’Arche community in St. Louis, Missouri, and Jacob’s Village in a suburb of Evansville, Indiana.
