The clanking of billiard balls fills the air, mingling with the lyrics of “We Will Rock You” that have many heads in the room bobbing. Word searches are being penciled in, arts and crafts are in the works, and friends catch up over a cup of coffee as the smell of fresh, gooey brownies delights the senses.
This is an ordinary morning at ReCreación – FSL’s day program for the elderly and other vulnerable adults, which is anything but ordinary.
It’s a place where “members,” an honorary title for those who receive care here, are accompanied in a safe and engaging environment, all while being celebrated in their dignity.
Your gift to the Charity and Development Appeal enhances the lives of vulnerable adults like Christopher through intentional, engaging, and dignified care.
Established in 1974, FSL has served the greater Phoenix area for the past five decades through many impactful programs, including nutritious meal services, affordable housing options, health and wellness programs, senior centers, and support for caregivers. And while all of these meet the needs of individuals and families with incredible generosity, none stand out quite like ReCreación.
“Our members are the ones who make this program so special,” said Valerie Blair, Director of ReCreación’s west valley location.
“We serve adults who live with a physical, cognitive, or developmental disability, or a medical condition, and each one brings a unique joy to our ReCreación community. It’s such an honor to journey with our members and their caretakers, providing care that meets their specific needs along the way.”
