MHMR Visions hosted its 9th Annual Opening Doors Dinner on April 21, 2016. Almost three hundred guests crowded the beautiful back patio at Joe T. Garcia's Mexican Restaurant. This annual event raises funds and educates the community about the vital role MHMR Tarrant plays for the people in our community.
MHMR Disability Services was featured. Jan Farrington shared how MHMR services have helped her daughter Bryn. Jan spoke with gratitude for MHMR and how its services have been invaluable for her as the parent of child with intellectual challenges
"We Have a Voice" is a group of young adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities who use performance to deliver the powerful message that we are not defined by their disabilities. Their song earned a standing ovation from the dinner guests!
Festivities included a silent auction and the popular "Make My Day" gifts to special MHMR programs. Kathy Johnson, a Visions board member, pledged to match donations dollar for dollar up to $1,000 for anyone who contributed to purchase Baby Bed Boxes for ECI babies.
