HCCC Receives Recycling Grant From Weyerhaeuser

The Howard County Children’s Center accepted a $2000 grant from Weyerhaeuser on Friday, October 29th  to expand the center’s recycling program into the Cossatot Community College of the University of Arkansas.  According to Assistant Director Rose Ray, bins have been purchased and will be placed at the Nashville and De Queen college campuses.  They will be used to recycle a variety of office waste, including magazines, newspapers and copy paper.  Once the bins are filled up, they’ll be taken to the children’s center for recycling.  A number of area school districts have similar programs already in place with the Howard County Children’s Center.  Nashville CCCUA campus director Mike Kinkade and Weyerhaeuser Human Resource Manager Debbie Burke was on hand for the grant presentation.

HCCC Celebrates 40 Years of Service

The Howard County Children’s Center celebrated 40 years of service on Wednesday, October 12th with a Chamber of Commerce Coffee and tours of the Liz Bell Learning Center – 1577 Hwy 371 West – Nashville AR.  The Center has 105 developmentally disabled adult clients, twenty-five developmentally delayed children, and fifty-five day care children ranging in age from 2 months to 65 years.

In 1971, the Howard County Children’s Center opened its doors with twelve students, two teachers and one aide.  It took five months of intense planning for this dream to become a reality.  It was to be the beginning of an odyssey that would grow to provide training, education and work experiences for hundreds of developmentally disabled children and adults from the surrounding area.  Liz Backus Bell and Ruth Foltz were the teachers accompanied by their aide, Dot Porterfield.

Services are offered in the areas of  Adult Development, Adult Work Programs, Adult Residential Program, Transporation and Developmental Day Program for Children.
