CLP's Community Experiences

Over the past year, DSC's Community Living Program (CLP) has been actively curating monthly socials, or Community Experiences, based on the interests of our community members. These events are thoughtfully planned, and we also provide training opportunities related to budgeting, addressing transportation issues, and guiding attendees upon arrival.

Earlier this month, CLP members attended 'Soul to Soul,' an event celebrating Black History Month held at Vineyard Church in Urbana. We thoroughly enjoyed a delicious soul food meal, catered by Neil St. Blues, and engaged with others in our community and beyond. Before and during the meal, there was an itinerary at each table with a list of questions for people to ask each other. The questions covered such topics as culture, food, and love, and encouraged everyone at the table to open up and share aspects of their cultures. We learned so much about each other!

After dinner, we were treated to uplifting gospel music and inspiring words about community, cultural differences, and acceptance. We were filled with hope and look forward to many more community experiences!
