Birthday Bash at CDS
Greenville, S.C. (July 18, 2018): The Center for Developmental Services (CDS) recently celebrated 18 years of serving the Upstate. Local heroes and celebrities visited throughout the week of July 9th-13th in honor of the event. Volunteers helped with face-painting, games, and art projects. The Greenville Fire Department, Greenville Police Department, and Buddy the Bear from the Children’s Hospital of the Greenville Health System spent time with families and children to help CDS celebrate this milestone.
With the Upstate community’s continued support, CDS served more than 7,600 children with learning delays and disabilities in 2017.
CDS is the largest multi-disciplinary treatment facility in the Upstate for children with disabilities and developmental delays. In one location, children receive services in therapy, diagnosis, legal help, day care needs for the medically fragile, and a family support network. The partnership is comprised of Clarity; Family Connection of SC; Medical-Legal Partnership; KidVentures of Thrive Upstate; and four programs of the Greenville Health System: Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics, Kidnetics, The Wonder Center, and Prosthetics and Orthotics. CDS and its partners serve over 7,600 children and their families each year on property donated by the First Presbyterian Church at 29 North Academy Street in Greenville.
