Society for the Handicapped provides a loving family living environment for my sister. I trust the ladies that work at my sister's home. I honestly do not know what I would do without them! We are in regular contact by phone. I stop in unannounced and I always feel welcome. My sister loves her roommates and the staff.
The day program provides a safe environment that keeps my sister active and social.
SHC is a blessing to our entire family!

Thank you SHC Staff!, 05-22-2018 01:12PM

First of all, we really appreciate the opportunity to tell others about our experience with SHC. When we were suddenly left without a caregiver for our family member last year, we were not sure what we would do. We were introduced to SHC and they have made such a difference in his life! His residential living arrangement has been such a blessing! When he arrived there he was mostly non-verbal (which is vastly improved now). He also had many medical conditions, and several of those conditions have since been resolved with proper medical treatment. It is unbelievable how much the staff cares for him, on his good days and on the days when he can still be more challenging. We initially didn't think he was capable of going to a day program, but the Link has been great for him also. Although we know our family member still has challenges, he has made great strides in his physical condition and life skills, and we owe it all to SHC. It takes a village, and from our family to 'the village at SHC' .... Thank you SHC staff!
