The Mission at SRVS

To provide the services that people with disabilities need to live meaningful lives as members of their community. Our vision is a community that supports personal growth, happiness, options and opportunities for people with developmental disabilities.

SRVS makes it a point to have participants in their program live life with the quality they deserve. Scheduled outings are a great way for individuals to just explore the city. I got to tag along as we scoured different areas of the city like Bass Pro and the Tennessee Welcome Center.

I got to know the ground I was with through just hanging out. Our group leader “Miss Cathy” was very engaged with everyone. Asking questions, seeing if the class knew colors or what was on a price tag. Getting feedback of things we were looking at and interacting makes an experience much more engaging and I think that is really important and I’m grinned seeing someone so caring leading the group around.

The Sparkling Nights fundraiser hosted by SRVS is coming soon in August, come out an support the #BeAmazing people of SRVS.
