Building Buchanan County and beyond…

Community Engagement & Education

Progressive Community Services believes in the power of speaking about issues.

We seek opportunities for learning and collaborating with community businesses, organizations and individuals.

Together, we can affect community wide beliefs through engagement and initiatives that increase inclusion and quality of
life for all.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT HIGHLIGHTS

In partnership with agencies and organizations in Buchanan County, we work together to educate people with developmental disabilities, their families, and the community about issues that affect the disability community. Here are just a few of the partnerships we're proud of. See our Tax Levy & Funding page for even more partnerships.

Chatter Series

Each year PCS offers classes that help people in the goal areas that matter to them. Chatter series in the past have been on the topics of relationships, healthy living, money management, and social connection. Chatter series are typically 4-6 weeks and are designed to help people build skills. To learn more about the Chatter series available, visit  https://progressivecommunityservices.com/social-chatter-making-connections/ or email pcs@sb40pcs.com.

Regional Transition Network (RTN)

The Regional Transition Network (RTN) is a group of community partners that work together to increase options for transition aged youth in Buchanan County.  The RTN is designed to build partnerships between local resources, providers, and the local school district in an effort to increase education around post-secondary options including college, technical school, employment, etc. To learn more about the RTN, email pcs@sb40pcs.com.

G.O.O.D. Day

GOOD Day is an annual event designed for transition aged youth (ages 14-20).  Teens engage with their peers in fun activities that help them consider their vision for a good life. They will think about each domain of life such as Community Living, Daily Life and Employment, Social and Spirituality, Citizenship and Advocacy, Healthy Living, and Safety and Security.  To learn more about GOOD day, email FN@sb40pcs.com

Outreach/Education

PCS works with local community providers to offer outreach and education for teams and/or people who would benefit from PCS referrals. The Family Navigation team can visit with your team/staff to help explain who might benefit from a PCS referral, and how we can better support people with developmental disabilities. PCS can also attend community outreach events to connect directly with people and potential referrals.  To inquite about outreach, please email FN@sb40pcs.com
