Not Forgotten Home & Community Services

A nonprofit that offers services to adults with intellectual disabilities will hold an open house across its three locations in the area in May.

Not Forgotten Home and Community Services will open its doors to the public from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 2 at its locations in Bridgeville, Carnegie and Monroeville.

The centers offer art classes, cooking groups, yoga classes, drumming circles, games, computers, dances, fitness programs and other activities for adults with any intellectual or physical disability.

The open houses, held at each facility, will offer the community a free chance to learn about the programs offered.

The locations are:

• Club Forget-Me-Not! EAST: 500 Garden City Drive, Monroeville.

• Studio Forget-Me-Not!: 101 W. Main Street, Carnegie.

• Club NF: 454 Montgomery Avenue, Bridgeville.

The nonprofit launched in 2017 in Carnegie, said Laura Stuart, the organization’s creative services director.

“We are so excited to now offer three centers in our region, and still growing,” she said in a news release. “It’s inspiring to open our doors and meet new faces. We welcome young adults who may be transitioning into adulthood and adults of all ages who want to have more activity and community options.”

Classes and programs range in cost from $5 to $10, Stuart said.

“We are pleased to continue expanding a non-traditional alternative to routine adult day programs for individuals with intellectual disabilities. The daily activities we offer are based on personal choice and are community oriented – designed to provide individuals with all-inclusive options,” said Sonja Garnett-Williams, executive director.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
