A gift of music
Submitted By DPAC
The Virtuoso International Flute Ensemble (VIFE) has served the community with a gift of music and is happy to dedicate a concert on December 15 in support of Deaf Plus Adult Community (DPAC), an organization providing an adult day program for people who are deaf or deaf/blind and have developmental delays.
Program Director Nancy Eddy is a mother of three adult children - two with special needs. Her youngest child, Christy, has developmental disability and is also deaf. Raising a child with developmental disabilities (DD) is extremely difficult, but an added challenge such as deafness, is incredibly daunting. Nancy's passion is part of her nature but she is also influenced by a deep love of her children. She has served as Associate Executive Director of Parents Helping Parents (PHP) and as Supported Living and Independent Living Director for Friends of Children with Special Needs (FCSN).
Everyone she meets feels the warmth of her caring heart. Early this year, she pursued a dream and founded her own non-profit organization, Deaf Plus, to serve the deaf and developmentally disabled. Through faith and determination, her program is well on its way to success. However, city use permit compliance criteria are causing a shortage of funds to complete improvements needed for the Deaf Plus Center. We are asking the community to give generously in support of Deaf Plus at the VIFE Christmas concert.
