Summer House celebrates 40 years

From page A4 | July 21, 2013 |

On July 28, Summer House will celebrate its 40th anniversary of providing service to developmentally disabled adults in Yolo County. A celebratory party is planned from 2 to 4 p.m. at Hotel Woodland, 436 Main St. in downtown Woodland.

“All are welcome to join us in saluting the great individuals who have been part of the Summer House family as well as looking forward to the future,” a news release said.

Former Woodland Mayor Gary Sandy will be the guest speaker, and a video about Summer House will be screened. Light refreshments will be served and children are welcome.

To help with planning, RSVP to Erin Plank-Ryan by July 25 at 530-662-2763 or [email protected].

Summer House began in the summer of 1973 as a six-week pilot program to determine the success of group home living for adults with disabilities. The response to the project from both parents and residents was overwhelmingly favorable, and a nonprofit corporation, Summer House Inc., was formed in 1974.

“As a true grassroots organization, Summer House has enjoyed considerable financial support from individuals, businesses and community organizations as it has continued to grow and broaden its offerings,” a news release said. “High-quality services are now provided to 12 residents in the Woodland home, 12 in the Davis home and approximately 50 other adults in Woodland, Davis, Esparto, West Sacramento and other parts of Yolo County.”

Summer House is fundraising to purchase a 10-passenger, wheelchair-accessible bus for each residence. These vehicles will serve the residents of each home and clients in Summer House’s other programs. Donations may be sent to Summer House Inc., P.O. Box 1727, Woodland CA 95776 or made through the website, www.summerhouseinc.org.
