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: . . .

Finally spring is here! As we move into our final quarter of our fiscal year, our overall commitment to providing services and continued project renovations have really shaped up, but will continue!
Spring Fling is right around the corner, come on out on Saturday April 18th 11am—2pm for our traditional Nevins Board Cookout and awards. We will have the cake walk, dancing and the annual awards that we all enjoy, along with some surprises (including a Mac and Cheese contest!)
We also have Camp Nevins right around the corner beginning on June 15th. We are bringing back this successful program for the second year, let your friends and family know so that your friends can join us for the summer!
The St Anthony’s Festa Italiana is on the calendar for May 17th at Queens University. This is the 10th anniversary, and I know that Dr. Voci has a lot of exciting things planned for this year to benefit us. As most of you know Nevins receives 100% of the proceeds, and this is our biggest fundraiser of the year.
This year the Festa is focusing on “Raising the Roof”. We have several leaks in our Corkey Building and Baucom Building that we are currently working to repair. The Festa goal is to raise $30k this year for roof replacement and repair and with your help we can achieve this!
