Serve, Inc. is a private, non-profit organization that was established in 1969 to meet the challenging demands of needed services to the disabled population of Bradford and Sullivan Counties. Our mission began and remains to be a facility designed to meet the vocational, social, emotional and recreational needs of individuals who are not readily accepted into mainstream society. Serve, Inc. was established through the hard work and volunteer efforts of parents and dedicated community leaders to provide meaningful work in a safe, healthy and protected environment; as well as a place for disabled individuals to socialize and develop self-esteem and self-worth through real work for real wages.
On each of Serve, Inc. website pages you will find a link to the Spread the Word to End the Word website. Spread the Word to End the Word is an on-going effort to raise the consciousness of society about the dehumanizing and hurtful effects of the word "retard(ed)" and encourage people to pledge to stop using the R-word. The campaign is intended to get schools, communities and organizations to rally and pledge their support to help create communities of inclusion and acceptance for all people.
We encourage you to educate yourself by clicking the Spread the Word to End the Word link and to share this campaign with others. The annual day of awareness is 03.04.15!
