Our in-person events are temporarily suspended due to Covid-19 restrictions in our state. However, we host online “faith and fun” events via Zoom, including Bible Studies, Worship Hours, Dances, Karaoke, Themed Events, and more. We are also hosting “Drive-Thru” events seasonally, observing social distancing. Treasures and their drivers visit a drive-thru station where we get to greet each other, have a little distanced celebration, and provide Treasures with a contactless gift bag pick-up. Read below for the details on our typical programming we look forward to resuming in the future. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
A “Treasure” is an individual with intellectual and developmental disability (Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, etc.). Treasures come from a variety of ethnic and religious backgrounds, financial statuses, ages and living situations (i.e., group homes, private homes, or supported living arrangements).
A “Treasure Night” is a designated day of the month where participating churches, their volunteers and “Treasures” get together for music, games, Bible lessons, prayer, crafts, and treats. It is a great opportunity for Treasures to interact with others while building great friendships.
To attend an All-Treasure Night, “Treasures” or their caregivers must first fill out and submit the QWO emergency form (below). Check our calendar for the next upcoming event, and join us! If you’re unable to fill out the online form, please contact the QWO office for a paper version. To attend individual church Treasure Nights, you’ll also need to fill out that church’s emergency form upon arrival at the event.
