I would like to extend a big Thank You! to Bank of America, Jon and Dawn Rochester, Bob and LeAnn Fenton, Dr. Wall, Nevins Board of Directors and staff for donating items for our care packages that we will be sending home with our participants for the holidays on December 17. This goes a long way toward showing the care and passion that our stakeholders and our employees have for supporting the mission of Nevins.
This month we are busy creating the first Nevins Yearbook in almost 10 years to commemorate another great year that has seen Nevins continue to grow and innovate to better help the individuals that we serve. Look for details on how you can get your copy in this issue.
I know we are all looking forward to the Annual Nevins/Charlotte Latin High School Dance this month. We all really appreciate the time and effort that the students put into hosting a dance just for us and we always enjoy it tremendously. I look forward to seeing everyone out on the 17th with their dancing shoes on!
Our Music Therapy class is starting up the first week of December as well. Keep an ear out for them!
As we move in to the winter months please be mindful that it is cold and flu season. Although we value you here, we want to avoid spreading germs. Please stay home, if you are not feeling well.
With the end of the year approaching I would like to thank all of our volunteers and financial supporters that have helped us deliver our mission this year with your help we have helped more people live a purpose filled life.
I would like to wish our families, staff, AFL supports, and stakeholders a Happy and Safe Holiday and a Happy New Year!

A new roof Just in time!
Finally! The Corkey Building roof replacement has been completed! Nevins, would like to extend a very big thank you for the success of the 10th Anniversary Celebration of Festa Italiana Charlotte, whose generosity allowed us to complete this much needed renovation right before the fall rain came.
The mural project by Charlotte Latin School also was completed, giving our Baucom building a great new touch of color and class. Thank you CW, Morgan and Rachel and all the students that lend a hand at Nevins.
Renovations and projects will still continue . . . Read more by downloading the whole newsletter here
Summer is coming to an end, but it certainly has been a very successful season!
Thank you to Natasha Young and her staff for their outstanding support and dedication they had conducting our Second Annual Camp Nevins. We had several participants come to Nevins daily, as well as inclusion with our normal day programs, interacting and having fun in several of the activities, field trips, and educational sessions. Natasha is already planning for next summer’s camp!
We have finally expanded and “spread our wings” with our partnership with Carolinas Healthcare System. . . .

We are halfway through the summer and it has been a hot one! Temperature-wise and for Nevins! On July 26th. we had the privilege of being a sponsor with Charlotte’s own celebration of the 25th. Anniversary of the American’s with Disabilities Act held at Spirit Square. It was so rewarding and humbling being reminded that there are other disabilities out there that require so much attention outside of the population we serve.
According to the 2010 U.S. Census, 18% of American Adults have a disability, in most cases it is not obvious. Nevins will continue to remain committed to helping our adult population experience the dignity and empowerment they so much deserve, through diversity and inclusion. Thank you Disability Rights and Resources for being such ambassadors! . . . Click below to download the whole Newsletter.
We are at the end of our fiscal year! I want to thank everyone for their continued passion and loyalty to Nevins and the services you provide. We have had a very successful year and we are closing on a very positive note. Our costs have had a somewhat consistent decline that will be a benefit for our future. I can confidently say that “Nevins is a leader in the industry.” We have come a long way and my vision will remain committed to helping our population experience the dignity and empowerment that comes from contributing to one’s family and the community. A few highlights that took place over the fiscal year: . . .
