“We are the Community”

 우리는 커뮤니티입니다.

                “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. Matthew 25:40(NIV)

“지극히 작은 자 하나에게 한 것이 곧 내게 한 것이니라”(마25:40)

Having meaningful daily activity positively and profoundly impacts the quality of life of our program participants and their caregivers. A recent study by Vanderbilt University (“Doing Nothing: Adults with No Daily Activities and Their Siblings“) found that adults with developmental disabilities and their caregivers experienced more illness and depression if the person with disabilities had no meaningful activities.
