FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Bon Secours St. Francis Resource Center at CDS
The library at the Center for Developmental Services (CDS) was recently remodeled as a result of Bon Secours St. Francis Health System and their multi-year commitment to CDS. The facility was renovated to make the area more efficient, attractive, and comfortable for children and their families.
CDS is proud of its partnership with Bon Secours St. Francis, a faith-based health system known for their mission of being Good Help To Those In Need®, and their donation of support for CDS children and families receiving multidisciplinary services under one roof.
The library received a new name: the Bon Secours St. Francis Resource Center.
Volunteers from CanIGetAWordIn.com and SANDLAPPER Securities helped to tear out old counters, cabinets, and bookshelves. The room has been upgraded with new computer desks, a wooden peg maze board, and comfortable seating for families. Children as well as parents utilize the 2nd floor library during therapy appointments. This is the first of several renovations planned at the Center for Developmental Services. The Blessing and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will be on Tuesday, October 4, 2016 at 1pm at the Center for Developmental Services on 29 North Academy Street in Greenville.
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, school placement, day care needs for the medically fragile, and a family support network. The partnership is comprised of Clarity; Family Connection of SC; the Preschool Special Education Program of Greenville County Schools; KidVentures of Thrive Upstate (formerly the Greenville County Disabilities and Special Needs Board); 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 6,000 children and their families each year on property donated by the First Presbyterian Church at 29 North Academy Street in Greenville.
