Description

Join Kansas City Young Professionals, presented by SocialHeart, for our monthly networking happy hour taking place in the West Bottoms at the Sincerely, Ellis.The January Happy Hour is on Wednesday, January 9th, from 5:30pm - 8:00pm. Free parking is available along the street and throughout the neighborhood.

Our charity partner this month is the Sherwood Center!

Sherwood’s mission is to empower children and adults with autism and related disabilities to maximize their potential in family and community life.

It started in 1974, when Debbie Wood was a UMKC psychology student, working with a boy in the Olathe Psychiatric Hospital. Debbie and another student had been taking turns, working with him day and night for eight months. The hospital was getting ready to discharge him, yet there were no schools for him to attend. They were going to send him home without services. Debbie said – “no way!” There has to be something better. Debbie and two other students started Sherwood with six students in a church basement. They used a combination of their last names to create the name and drew toothpicks to see who would be president.

At that time, it was the first agency to provide specialized education and support services to individuals with autism in the Kansas City area. Today, Sherwood provides high-quality services to both children and adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and a wide range of developmental disabilities.

The philosophy that “there has to be something better” still drives us today. We constantly seek to find the most effective methods and resources available to the individuals that we serve.

A TICKET IS REQUIRED and will provide admittance to theSincerely, Ellis. Each attendee will receive 2 drink tickets. Water and soda options will also be provided.
