Our Spring Issue of the VOICE is now out and ready for your reading pleasure.
In this edition, we invite you to celebrate 40 years with Vinfen and 10 years of our Moving Images Film Festival. You can learn the history of our festival and more about this year’s inspiring films. Our festival is on Saturday, April 1 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center in Boston, MA. The event is free and open to the public, but a $10 donation, in honor of our 10th year, is appreciated. Visit our Moving Images event page to learn more and to register.
This issue also highlights how Vinfen is leading the way by supporting people with psychiatric conditions get in shape with our new Fit Forward study, promoting self-advocacy for our individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and recognizing leaders in the peer movement who bridge the gap between the people we serve and staff. We also feature how one of the people we serve and how she has learned the therapeutic benefits of tending a garden thanks to your support. “The idea of caring for something…helped keep me alive,” said Quanita.
