New City Rotary and Jawonio (Aired on March 3 & 4, 2018)
In this program, devoted to the close relationship between a Rotary Club and an important local resource, RadioRotary interviews New City Rotarians Madelon Burger, Robert Pitkofsky, and Jill Warner (executive director and CEO of Jawonio) along with Jerry Staller, director of educational and clinical services at Jawonio, which supplies lifespan services for persons with special needs primarily to Rockland County. Jawonio is a Native American word that means “independence,” representing the goal to help children and adults with special needs reach their full potential and helping them become as independent as possible. It is a unique residence and school resource that helps persons from as young as 2-months old to as old as 99 years. New City Rotary has been closely involved with Jawonio for over fifty years. As the facilities, started as a camp in 1947, have age, it has come time for new buildings, including new cabins for a summer program. New City Rotary is helping not only with funding this new construction, but also is working with Jawonio to create the Nature Path for outdoor activities. Listen to this pair of double interviews to learn more about this fascinating partnership.

 New Horizons Resources of Dutchess and Ulster (Aired on September 2

Tyler Miller, a Direct Support Professional with New Horizons Resources, Inc., is interviewed about the New Horizons program for group homes in Dutchess and Ulster counties. New Horizons maintains over thirty homes for older (over age 20) persons with developmental or intellectual disabilities. One or more Direct Service Professionals are present at all times to facilitate the person-centered family-like situations. Residents largely take care of themselves with the assistance of helpers like Tyler Miller. The Direct Support Professionals also aid residents in visiting or working at outside facilities or in participating in such events as the Special Olympics. Mr. Miller became involved in part because his whole family does service of one kind or another, including his mother’s work at Cardinal Hayes Home for Children and brother’s job at the Anderson Center for Autism. Group homes are placed in neighborhoods throughout the community, enabling the residents to participate in community life instead of being shut away in institutions as was formerly common.
