My son loves attending Brother’s Keeper. He wakes up every day and eagerly jumps out of bed and prepares for the day. Before starting at BK, he would often sleep the morning away. Now, he stays very active all day and works on developing his skills in reading, writing, math, language, social, exercise, art, music, dancing, sports, and many more. The artwork he brings home always surprises and delights me. They take many trips for volunteering opportunities and enrichment activities which is great because he loves to be on the go. Each day begins with a devotion and ends with a prayer. He is so happy and talks about his friends and instructors all the time. When I drop him off in the mornings I know that he is having a great experience and is surrounded by many friends and caring, skillful staff. He comes home with smiles, lots of chatter and tired out!! Thanks Brother’s Keeper!!
Everyone at Brother's Keeper has a unique story. When we first moved to the area, one of the top priorities was to find a place for our son. A place for him to go during the day to have an enriched and fuller life than one just spent at home. When we discovered Brother's Keeper and explored the program we knew this was tailor made for what he needed. What we have experienced is nothing less than a miracle. Once accepted into the program we noticed several changes for the better with his behavior, health, and all-around life in general. The wide variety of community outings as well as activities and support from staff has given our son a positive disposition about going to Brother's Keeper. Also, the Christian environment and practices helped mold him with the kind of changes any parent would want to see in the development of their adult children. To sum it up, we were led to this place by the positive influence we knew it would have on our son.
I’m excited about Brother’s Keeper. It opens so many doors for so many individuals. One thing I have learned about people with special needs is that each and every person has a role in society. God made us all for a purpose. Jeremiah 29:11 says "I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future." He put us all here for a reason. They always bring joy to those around them and well as many other qualities. Giving adults with intellectual disabilities opportunities to serve in the community allows them to be used by God to serve others as only they can do.
I have been working with Brother’s Keeper participants for three years. I have seen so much growth artistically with the participants since we began this journey! BK participants are always eager to begin class and welcome me with open arms each week. I am so grateful for this experience that fills my heart with joy every week.
