I have had an idea to start a social group for people with developmental disabilities. I'm excited to say we have formed our group! We hope to file not-for-profit status in the near future.
 
Encompass Genesee is a newly formed social club for people with developmental disabilities who are 15 years of age or older, their families and the people who support them.
 
We will be meeting at Williams Park on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. in the pavilion. Our next meeting is tomorrow, July 12. Williams Park is located at 101 Pearl St. in the City of Batavia.
 
We will have a brief meet-and-greet and then will be playing baseball until 8 p.m. Bring your baseball gear!
 
Anyone who needs support personnel will need to provide it. We want family members to participate actively in this group. That is why we chose the name Encompass, because the group encompasses all who are involved.
 
We hope to do some future activities on Saturdays like barbecues, day trips, park days, sporting events and other fun functions for the whole family.
 
We decided to form this group because the social opportunities available for our loved ones are practically non-existent in Genesee County. Our first meeting was held on June 28th we had six families attend.
 
We are a grassroots club. All families and individuals need to provide support staff if needed during our activities and meetings.
 
We would appreciate any support or ideas people could offer, such as fun activities you might have information on. If anyone needs more information they can call me or e-mail me. 
 
Thanks,
Trina Goodman
