C.A.R.E. Center Vision Meeting Set for March 25 at Sulphur Springs City Hall

C.A.R.E. stands for Community, Ability, Recreation and Energy. A proposed C.A.R.E. Center for persons with disabilities may become a reality in Sulphur Springs. A “Vision” meeting is planned for Monday March 25 in the council courtroom of Sulphur Springs City Hall. Refreshments and fellowship will begin at 5:30pm with the program to begin at 6pm. Following a welcome by Jennifer Gregory, City Manager Marc Maxwell will introduce the The Visionaries, or organizers, of the concept. In a press release by The Visionaries Clay Pirtle and Rene Aguilar, who are both parent/caregivers of special needs children, one out of every five Americans has a disability. Special needs communities are on the increase in more populous areas, even as inclusive resources remain scarce. In rural areas, individuals often do without necessary services, leading to challenges by the individuals and their care/support teams. Through this endeavor of C.A.R.E. Center’s Visionaries, it is their personal mission to deliver ultra-inclusive programs for all. Once established, the C.A.R.E. Center would provide innovative, inclusive programs and community partnerships in order to serve individuals with any level of disability across the spectrum of human special needs.

Interested individuals in the public are encouraged to attend this meeting. A question and answer session will follow the presentation. If you would like more information, contact Clay Pirtle at 903-243-1614 or Renee Aguilar at 903-348-1022.
