Riding the cycle is Ellison Hurt. His wife, Laura, and Stacey McCord were instrumental in the concept of A Special Evening events five years ago and have served on the SCCS board.

Special Care & Career Services has always been on the forefront in developing programs that promote the inclusion of persons with disabilities in all aspects of the community - where we live, work & play.

Since 1963 Special Care & Career Services has assisted thousands of children and adults with developmental disabilities lead independent lives. In 2005 the organization's two exemplary programs impacted a total of 938 individuals with disabilities: Early Childhood Intervention and Supported Employment Services.

Mark your calendars now for Wednesday, April 26th and join us at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center for an amazing evening. At last year's Tom Jones concert, everyone had a rockin' time, literally dancing in the aisles as Jones belted out "She's a Lady" and all of his hits. This year with the Doobie Brothers promises to be even more exciting.
