Opportunity Enterprises was awarded a grant from the National Inclusion Project to partner with the Valparaiso YMCA to make summer day camps inclusive for children with special needs. The camps, which will be held during the summer of 2013 at the Valparaiso YMCA, will be staffed by teams from both OE and the YMCA. Camps will be open to children of all abilities, with at least 20% of the campers having special needs.
New Hope Services hosted Congressman Todd Young, who was especially interested to visit the WIC clinics and Children & Family Services. Congressman Young recognized New Hope Services staff for their dedication to the hundreds of individuals, children, and families they assist and care for each year.
