Parent Meeting At SE Human Development Center

A meeting of parents and family members was held at the Southeast Arkansas Human Development in Warren Saturday September 17, 2016.  Prior to the meeting, representatives of the Elks of Arkansas feed the clients and their families along with staff of the Center, hamburgers for lunch.  Just before the meeting for the parents began, the Elks presented the Southeast human Development Center with a check in the amount of $4200.00 to help support the clients.

The meeting consisted of remarks and a welcome from Interim Superintendent Steve Farmer and comments from Alan and Jan Fortney who serve on the board of the "Families and Friends of CAre Residents," a nonprofit organization that advocates for and supports the Human Development Centers and the clients and their families throughout Arkansas.  Plans called for election of officers and development and adoption of bylaws for the SE Center.  An update on the status of the Human Development Centers of Arkansas was on the agenda.

The Warren Unit serves nearly 100 people and provides health care and training for those in need.
