March is Developmental Disabilities Month, and Easter Seals is Celebrating!

The month of March brings awareness about disabilities and the needs for individuals to live an independent life in their communities. President Ronald Reagan declared March to be Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month in 1987, urging “all Americans to join me in according to our fellow citizens with such disabilities both encouragement and the opportunities they need to lead productive lives and to achieve their full potential.”

Easter Seals Southern Georgia recently partnered with Christie Burger with Mary Kay Cosmetics to conduct makeovers for the women in the Adult Day program. Christie gave instructions to the ladies on how to apply their make up correctly, and how to remove and cleanse their face at the end of the day.

Easter Seals Adult Day Programs mission is to ensure that people with developmental disabilities experience valued roles in the community by providing services and training that supports individual choices and opportunities. We have Adult Day centers in Albany, Leesburg, Tifton, Cordele and Vienna.

Easter Seals Southern Georgia provides exceptional services to ensure that all people living with disabilities or special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in our communities. Programs for children through adults are available. For more information go to http://www.easterseals.com/southerngeorgia/ or call (229)439-7061.
