Upcoming events in Central Missouri
DSG’s number one priority is the safety of the people we serve, our staff, and volunteers. We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19/Coronavirus situation, while developing and deploying numerous methods of “virtually” serving our population during this uncertain time. With both Kansas and Missouri officially closing schools through the end of 2019-2020 academic year, we have decided to extend the cancellation of our “in-person” services through Friday, August 7th.
Please reach out to Jessica Fahey, program coordinator for the Central Missouri area, with any questions - email@example.com. We are here for you!
DSG has started virtual programming! Teens and adults in Central Missouri are welcome to join Zoom sessions from 4:30-5:30 PM on Tuesdays starting April 28th. We know it's difficult when you aren't able to see and talk to friends in person, so we wanted to provide an opportunity for groups to get together and catch up virtually. Each meeting will be an hour long and will be a laid-back space where people can interact as much or as little as they like. We will participate in show and tell (pet edition), movement and dancing, virtual games and more. DSG staff will be present to moderate each meeting and make sure everyone has a chance to interact. For safety and security, Zoom meeting links will be sent directly to registered families prior to the scheduled hangout. If you have never "Zoomed" before, simply click the link for your meeting from your computer, iPad or phone and you should get right in. You do not need to create an account to join a meeting.
