All that Glitters- United Rehabilitation Services


Today we had the pleasure of visiting URS to "polish" the ladies! It was our first visit and we could not wait-it was also my first day of spring break and that was great too!
As we entered the activity room we knew that it was going to be a busy day and we were ready! We had polish, we had glitter,we had art paint and stickers and we were ready to roll.
URS serves over 300 men, women, and children daily, who have special needs some who are aged, blind or disabled. They do great work with activities and support for their clients and we were happy to be there for them today.
Ms Diane {O} was our tour guide and leader today, and she gave us a detailed orientation on how this remarkable program works. It was also a pleasure to meet the awesome staff that were so loving and kind not only to their clients but to us,as visitors, as well.
Let the fun begin! We polished almost 20 "Girlz" today all with different needs and request, some hearing impaired, some in wheelchairs, some without vision but all beautiful and eager to be "polished". We made some wonderful new friends and now we have polished special women all over this city ages 5-63 which has made Me very proud.
Because of this visit, I am formally changing our age requirements for services. There will now be a policy that no age restrictions are allowed, these phenomenal women reminded me that we are all "Girlz" at heart!
