A New Year for Nevins!
July 1st. is the start of our new fiscal year, and I am very excited to share some of our successes this past year! It’s been rewarding to know that we have accomplished what we had set goals for this past year. Nevins achieved a three year Accreditation with CARF, a roof replacement on our cafeteria, two passenger vans to upgrade our fleet, Administration Office and Technology upgrades, and the development of our art and music therapy programs.
Nevins Inc. has had over 30% growth while delivering quality services to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We continue to receive encouraging feedback from family members, friends and longtime supporters of Nevins. In contrast to where we have been in the past, Nevins faces increased competition among organizations that provide similar services to intellectually and developmentally disabled adults in Mecklenburg County. I firmly believe, as do our community members, that no one does it as well as Nevins, and we are committed to maintaining our position as a leading service provider.
Nevins Inc. would like to thank Dr. Voci and the St. Anthony’s Foundation for hosting the 12th Annual Festa Italiana All proceeds benefit the Nevins Center. This year the event was held at the beautiful Courtyards of Gateway Village in Uptown Charlotte, with more restaurants that supported us, as well as top notch entertainment. We do not have overall numbers that have been raised for Nevins yet; however, it has been estimated that 700+ were in attendance! We plan on improving our Technology even more, and could potentially use some of the funds to begin the capital improvement for the Baucom building roof replacement.
