Many people were in attendance along with Secretary Howard, including several members from the KDADS team, other Envision employees, Envision program participants and caregivers and families of consumers. Secretary Howard has spent more than 15 years of her career working in human services at the state and federal level and is passionate about the mission of PRIDE and what Envision offers to its consumers in the program.
“It was such an honor to have Secretary Howard and several members of the KDADS team join us for the PRIDE open house,” said Stacy Fuller, Executive Director of Rehabilitation and Support Programs. “We feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to modernize and improve our space to continue serving our clients at the upmost level of care and having Secretary Howard speak to the crowd as part of the gathering was great. This remodel has truly been a teamwork project and now we have a lovely space to continue supporting the needs of individuals with an intellectual developmental disability in Sedgwick County.”
Consumers can now enjoy a modernized, accessible training kitchen, a laundry area, a new sensory room, an art workstation area, new media spaces and more that provide a variety of daily learning opportunities of their choosing. Forty-five consumers can now participate in this unique Adult Day Support Program; currently, the program has 36 consumers. We are proud to be able to better support our consumers in their vocational, social, leisure and independence-seeking goals with this remodel.
