What's Happening at Devereux California … June 2017

  

On May 17, Devereux California hosted an Evening in Italy, a dinner and dancing event for the individuals in our care, along with other adults in the community living with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences. The party, held at the Goleta Valley Community Center, was an opportunity for these individuals to interact with their peers. Everyone enjoyed a pasta dinner, generously donated by Via Maestra 42. Special thanks to “DJ Martin” and the Santa Barbara Rotaracts for their help with this fun and festive event.

Congratulations to our Adult Day Program Administrator Amy West who received the 2017 Supervisory Excellence Award for demonstrating a commitment to our core values, instilling pride, and fostering personal and professional growth. Charlotte Tatjes, Program Assistant Supervisor, received the “Runner Up” Supervisor Excellence Award.
