Couple at promBradley, a client in our Family Disability Services (FDS) program, was delighted to be asked to the senior prom. He didn’t have the money for a tuxedo and didn’t own a nice suit.

FDS staff mobilized to solicit donations from Dooley’s, Anderson’s Bridal & Operation Prom — and all were willing to help! At the end of the day, Bartlett High School funded the tux and donated the tickets.

Bradley’s prom experience illustrates a key staff responsibility in the FDS program — support families who care for individuals who experience developmental disabilities.

Some days that developmental disability support may look like groceries from the CSS food pantry, scheduling respite care, helping the client to secure & retain employment, and some days it may mean helping a young man accept a date to his prom.
