The Heidi Art Gallery was full of smiles, laughs, greeting friends and air hugs. On December 16th, after a hiatus last year, JSDD hosted the annual holiday party for the Residential Staff.
The beautiful and versatile gallery was festive with decorations and holiday music, but it was the art of the WAE Center members that shined. For many of the Direct Service Professionals (DSPs) it was their first time in the new JSDD building. The staff enjoyed a delicious catered meal.
Executive Director, Linda Press addressed the group with heartfelt thanks for the behemoth tasks and previously unimaginable stress the group has overcome these past two years. The DSPs continue to show up and support the residents of JSDD. The dedication of the residential team was evident when Linda announced employment milestones.
JSDD thanks the entire residential staff and we all look forward to a happy HEALTHY New Year!
