PSRS is so excited, and thankful for all of the generous supporters who stepped up to make this GiveBig a great success. Thanks to you, we exceeded our goal and raised a total of $10,533!

This past November, PSRS parent Jeanne Richmond spoke at Legislative Night to advocate for her sons and for Supported Living. Jeanne knows the reality all too well - lack of funding leads to high turnover, which can impact the quality of support her adult children and others receive. Jeanne is not alone and she wanted legislators to know about it.

PSRS helps people work towards reaching their goals and finding new ways to enjoy the world around them. Learn more about the challenges and successes of supporting people like Joel to take steps towards new life experiences.

PSRS has an amazing team who worked extra hard for days ensuring the people we support stayed safe during an epic snow storm. Team members arranged transportation for and drove staff to homes, covered shifts, delivered supplies, shoveled snow, and more.

The PSRS holiday party was a hit! Food, music, crafts, a photo booth (complete with props), gifts, elves, lights, sparkly stuff, and the white bearded wonder himself, Santa . See why this was a holiday party to remember.

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.
