Sunshine Connection, Inc. is a Drop-in Center & Socialization Program for individuals with a Mental Health Diagnosis or a Physical Disability.

We offer individuals a wide range of educational and support groups with topics including: Advance Directives & Living Wills, Risk Taking, Budgeting and Spirituality Class.

We also give our people the chance to develop and sharpen inter-personal and socialization skills.

We also offer a nutritious & well balanced meal every day.

This is our Mission Statement: The Sunshine Connection, Inc. is an Organization for individuals to attend and have a safe place to improve their minds, to relax, to just have fun and/or to volunteer in many areas which improve their self-esteem and their self-worth.

Over the past 2 years we have increased our daily attendance from an average of 15 people per day to an average of 60 people per day. We have also started allowing a church to meet at our facility on Sundays thereby offering some type of activity seven days a week.

We have also started to operate a Recycling Facility on the property. We currently have over 75 customers & are always looking to expand. This gives our people opportunities to be an active part of the community workforce.

We have been ecstatic with all the changes over the past 2 years, but this has also put a responsibility on us to become more creative in ways to raise revenue to help us continue to operate. We receive very limited funds, so this is the reason that we are reaching out for donations. We are a 501c3 so all donations are tax deductible.

Any & all donations are appreciated!!
