“The members of The Next Stop don’t merely attend a community program. Every day they enter a dedicated “You Belong Here” zone. There is a high level of personal investments of time, energy and heart from the staff and volunteers which ensures individual and group effort and cohesion.

When our daughter Rose arrives at TNS, she is greeted by name by the many diverse members, volunteers and staff. She is met with smiles and questions about how she and her family members are doing. The happenings of her life are remembered and honored with discussion. She is invited to join whatever conversations or activities are currently transpiring. She has the opportunity to participate in new and familiar activities. Rose knows that sometimes she will be challenged beyond what she can currently do. Even when anxious, she has a swell of courage as she knows her peers and mentors will be helping her navigate new experiences while providing affirmation, celebration and personal growth.

The value of belonging is the underpinning of every intention, plan and activity. The number and variety of the quality activities offered, the growth and self-confidence that emerges with meeting challenges, and the joy of fellowship and friendship with peers, are just a part of the many benefits of membership at The Next Stop.” – Beth and Jeff
