This time of year, always reminds me of how grateful I am for all of our CCS Family. It is a great time to reflect on the impact that you all have made in our community. We are extremely lucky to have such amazing people striving to make a difference in the world. Thank you for making this year a great success despite the many challenges we have faced.

We hope that you will continue to help us during the holiday seasons by participating in our #TLCforTPC on GivingTuesday, Chipotle fundraiser, sponsor a wish on our holiday wish list, and grab one of our Giving Wreaths. Sending you all of my warm wishes during this season of thankfulness. Cheers to a joyful and abundant Thanksgiving. May this day be a beautiful reminder of the wonderful things in life!

With Love,

Sally L. Buchanan, CEO


You all amaze everyone with your intelligence and brilliance. The world is waiting to see your wonders. Wishing a fun and happy birthday to you all!

Family First

Family is the foundation of the holiday season! A handful of our youth have been surrounded by the love of siblings, parents, and grandparents. We have an adoption that finalized this month and another one of our youth has a forever home. Furthermore, one youth has mastered using the restroom independently and another has moved into his own apartment! We are elated to see our youth starting this holiday season off strong by building positive behaviors, creating memories, and bonding with family!

Creative Community Services will be participating in Giving Tuesday and we need your help! This GivingTuesday we will focus on our Teen Parent Connection (TPC) Program. Often times Teen Parents -especially those in foster care- are impacted by the negative views of society. We are here to break that stigma because we believe teen parents deserve love too! TPC helps to prevent child abuse, empower teen parents, provide life-long skills, and end the cycle of foster care.

Developmental Disabilities Rocks the Vote

We are so thrilled to see the dedication and support from our Host Home Providers with getting our individuals to the polls to vote. We had the largest voter turn-out this year. We are so happy to announce that our individuals participated in expressing their political voices!
