This Valentine’s Day, show your love to the many children and adults with disabilities who thrive at Matheny.
We couldn’t do the work we do without you!
Acceptance is created from an Empowered movement that Educates others to Embrace diversity and Love Life by seeing beyond abilities.
Please join the Matheny Resident Advocacy Group to: Embrace diversity. Educate your community. Empower each other. Love life. The advocates ask that:
1. If you own clothing with the wheelchair heart symbol wear it on January 20th to show your support!
2. Help support our residents by dressing them in their clothing with the wheelchair heart symbol or BLUE on January 20th
3. Stop by our table to show your support of acceptance during program/school hours in the resident/student dining room
4. Spread the word about International Day of Acceptance on social media #dayofacceptance
We are proud to announce that Dion “Primetime” recently earned his fourth degree black belt! He used his karate skills to defend against other karate students and even learned a new skill using a bow staff. Dion has been a participant of the adapted karate program at Matheny for the past 14 years. He always gives 110% at every class and is dedicated, motivated, and on a quest to be his best thanks to the guidance of Mr. Tom Kately and the students at the school. Way to go, Primetime!
