Direct Support Professionals are a vital part of our community. This week’s proclamation from Governor Maura Healey says, “The Commonwealth recognizes the important role Direct Support Professionals play in improving the quality of life and care of people across Massachusetts.”

We couldn’t agree more!

This week is Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week, and we would like to offer a big “thank you” to each and every Direct Support Professional working around the clock to provide excellent care.

The Annual 2023 Jack Rua Invitational is in the books, and our gratitude is in full swing.
The sun came out of hiding and shone on all the golfers yesterday at Crestwood Country Club. We couldn’t have asked for a better group of golfers, donors, sponsors, volunteers, and partners to help bring this event to life. There were so many fun times shared, relationships formed, and unforgettable memories made.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone who supported the tournament, raising money for the campers and families we serve Camp Jack. We already can’t wait until next year - hope to see you there!
Thank you again to our Title Sponsors, Rua Dumont Audet and Mechanics Cooperative Bank.

Heartfelt congratulations to the People Incorporated Preschool Class of 2023! We were thrilled to have an in-person graduation after three long years. Our students did a fantastic job singing, reciting a poem, and even portraying a song in American Sign Language.

Way to go, students!

Special thanks to a team of very dedicated teachers who went over and above in planning the presentation and creating memory books of the children's work over the year - a wonderful keepsake for our families. Additionally, all graduates received a backpack full of goodies for kindergarten. It truly was a night to remember!
