Communities United, Inc. Announces 50th Anniversary Celebration at Grace Chapel in Lexington
By: Communities United, Inc.
The event is free and open to the public, consisting of a pancake breakfast (10:00 a.m. to noon); stories about the impact of CUI from staff, parents and alumni; children's musicians and instrument making; face painting and STEM activities. Special edition 50th anniversary t-shirts will be available for purchase as well.
"After fifty years of service, I could not be prouder of our team and how we constantly identify and assist at-risk families with young children in the communities we serve, while ensuring they receive the necessary resources and skills to succeed, said Terri Natale, executive director at Communities United, Inc. "But there is more work to be done. Although our event at Grace Chapel will be a celebration and reflection of the 350 children who benefitted from our services, it will also serve as a launching pad for CUI's growth plans, expanded programs and resources, and continued success for the next fifty years."
Communities United, Inc. provides educational programs and family services to families within the local community. The team is made up of 80 employees including teachers, social workers and administrators. Regardless of economic backgrounds, CUI offers a breadth of services that are geared towards early childhood development. They focus on children four months to five years of age by providing interactive programs that encourage participation from the children.
In addition to helping children learn and develop through educational programs, CUI aims to assist their social development and sense of empowerment as well. With the services social workers provide, families are able to learn how to cope with changes in their child's development. These affordable, hands-on programs are accessible to anyone within the communities CUI serves.
