A Message from the Associate Director

This is the time of year for thanks.  Thank you to all of our wonderful employees for taking such good care of our members.  Thanks to organizations that have given us grants such as Sundt Foundation, Allstate, and the Federal Government.  Thank you to all of our donors.  Each and every dollar helps us!

Recently we were granted a wheelchair accessible van for 2020 at a cost of $59,000.  Our portion due is 15% or roughly $8,800.  Please help donate towards our portion of the van!!  Transportation is a wonderful and a big portion of our program.  It allows us to bring members to and from the center.  It also allows our members to go on outings such as visiting museums, libraries, parks, or participating in Special Olympics.

May all your holidays be blessed!

2019 Arizona State Fair!

Visit to Phoenix Police Museum

On November 18, 2019 a group from Juniper visited the Phoenix Police Museum.  It is located on the first floor of historic city hall in downtown Phoenix.





Happy Halloween

Thursday, October 31st, was Spook-tack-ular at Independence Plus!  Each program area had their own game or activity.  Rooms then took turns visiting all the other program areas.  Lunch was served starting at 11:30 PM with a beautifully decorated table of goodies.  Room games and activities started around 12:30 PM.  At 3:00 PM:  ISP and regular educational activities took place.  All in all it was a full day at Independence Plus!












Happy Thanksgiving

Great food and table preparation by members and staff.  All rooms assisted in making our festive holiday come alive!  Kudos to the board of directgors and their families for helping out this year.  They are wearing the black aprons with turkey on the front.  Everyone had a great time!!
