Welcome and thank you for your interest! PROBUS members and volunteers are area PROfessional and BUSiness men and women joined to develop and support programs for persons with disabilities.

OUR MISSION

We strive to improve the quality of life of people with intellectual and physical challenges.

Our activities promote socialization and integration into the mainstream culture of our community.

OUR PLEDGE

Our Board and members pledge to treat all individuals equally, and to follow all the terms of the “Disability Awareness/People First Language Pledge”.

We support Special Needs Education, campership, and cultural and sporting experiences We work with other organizations to serve and enhance the lives of our fellow citizens with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

PANDEMIC CONSIDERATIONS AND RESUMPTION OF OUR PROGRAMS.

Until late Spring of 2021, the Covid-19 pandemic forced cancellations in planned events. We held monthly virtual ZOOM meetings. Now, following CDC guidelines PROBUS will again be meeting face to face. We are planning for future outings to sporting events. For dates, visit our CALENDAR.

On June 16th, 2021, Charles Dobrow gave his Annual Presidential Summary Address to our membership. His review documented how Probus navigated the restrictions to meeting during the past year and how we have networked with other groups. We successfully applied for and received grant support from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. Engaging with new volunteers as well as qualified candidates to expand our Board is a high priority.
