Rock Recreation Program Success

Carol is a client of our Rock County Recreation program for adults with developmental disabilities and/or traumatic brain injury. When we first met Carol last year she wasn’t social and only attended an occasional event.

What a difference a year makes! In 2017 staff from the recreation program have seen Carol much more often. She attends bingo, game, and movie nights and has been making connections with other participants.

Now Carol arrives to events with a huge smile and positive attitude. We have really watched her bloom and grow through attending the program.  Carol now socializes with her new friends, program staff, and volunteers.

She even looks forward to seeing what events are scheduled in the future and is ready and willing to try new activities. Staff and volunteers of our Rock County Recreation program are honored to have helped Carol ‘come out of her shell’, get involved in her community, form friendships, and improve her health and well-being. We are looking forward to watching her continue to grow and blossom in 2018!
