It's time to Celebrate You! and You! and You!

Thursday, April 25, 2024, 6 p.m.

We have something BIG to celebrate. 2024 marks the year that we have officially met our goal of acquiring 24 properties!  Which is the precise number of homes to meet the needs of people in residential services at JCDS. We are busy working to complete the 4 homes and hope to have that accomplished by Dec. 31, 2024.

So… CELEBRATE WITH US at Celebrate Friends. This year will be a fun time at the Lenexa Thompson Barn Space! We will have yummy appetizers and charcuterie boards, with wine and beer, followed by a picnic dinner, entertainment and the acknowledgement of the GOOD WORK that happens right here in Johnson County!
