It's Halloween 2018 and this year, our HR Coordinator Allie thought we needed to channel the Halloween spirit at the office. And we definitely needed to invite people we support and staff to help inspire us. Costumes were mandatory (no they weren't, HR knows they can't do that but they were highly encouraged). There was candy....lots of candy. We ate candy!.....We are still eating candy. It was a ton of fun and we have the photos to prove it!

It's a bitter sweet end of year for PSRS as we say good bye to one of our most senior team members. Theresa Helm-Buckman is doing the retirement thing after 24 years with PSRS and while we are happy for her, it is truly our loss. PSRS wishes her all the best as she moves into the next stage of her life. Those who have worked closely with Theresa over the years have some special messages to share.

Studies have shown that giving makes us feel happy, is good for our health, and promotes social connection. We could all use some of that right about now! So, this November 27th, aka Giving Tueday, get ready to donate to PSRS and feel happy! We need you step up for our last fundraiser of the year! Help us reach our goal of $8,500.

Another successful golf tournament and another BIG THANK YOU to Mercury Pharmacy! This year, they raised $2000 for PSRS. We are so lucky for Mercury's support throughout the years. It was a great way to spend the work day! We got some great photos from the event to share!

It's Direct Support Professional Recognition Week! PSRS would not exist without the amazing people who support our mission, who day in and day out make a difference in the lives of people with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Join PSRS in recognizing our awesome DSPs and the valuable work they do!

LaDarla has a special hobby...driving. She was last at the Pacific Grand Prix Motorsports Park go cart track in Kent over two years ago and made it her mission to return.

PSRS had a goal to raise money for a specific cause during GiveBig - we were investing in nearly 20 agency vehicles to better support individuals (and their staff) to get out in their communities. And now we are on the road!

Congratulations and THANK YOU to Reggie Scott for his 20 years of commitment to PSRS and the people we support. Twenty years is a milestone for any job, but especially in Supported Living! PSRS is grateful to have such a loyal and dedicated team member.

June 1st 2018 marks the third annual PSRS Appreciation Day declared by the Mayor of Renton. PSRS has spent the past 35 years dedicated to providing critcal services, and connecting people with developmental and intellectual disabilities with their communities.

This year, PSRS had a big goal to raise $10,000. Many thank you's to our amazing supporters who helped PSRS give more choice and access to people with developmental and intellectual disabilities - we think that's pretty great
