The Metzenbaum Center has an enclave that runs out of one of the buildings at POV. We have had adults with developmental disabilities working with us for years. There have been some amazing people that have come through here and have a special place in our hearts. We can learn so much from each other and having such a great crew here reminds us we are all capable of doing amazing things.
We wanted to have this part of the website dedicated to the Metzenbaum Enclave. They love seeing their pictures and articles about them... Who doesn't? So from time to time we will up date this page with fresh new articles about or from the crew!

Kate got 3rd Place (Bronze) in the 50 yard dash and the softball throw. Kate said she was “surprised to win the bronze medal”. When asked what her favorite part was, she said “RUNNING”. Later she went out with her family and celebrated with a meal and a FROSTY at Wendy’s.
