Founded in 1980 by family members, Our House, Inc. is a private, non-profit organization that provides residential, employment and recreational services to individuals with developmental disabilities. I worked at Our House for a few years and it is an organization – correction – family that will always be a part of me.
Each year, Our House holds their Achievement Awards Dinner which is a night dedicated to recognizing the outstanding achievements by each individual that Our House supports. It is a night of celebration and dancing. The Our House family looks forward to this night each and every year. I was lucky enough to be a part of this amazing night again this year, which was hosted by John Elliott from CBS News (he featured the night during the morning news here).
For more information about Our House, including how you can help out, please visit their website.
Special thanks to Deb Cole for helping me capture this amazing night. You can check out her work here.
