Don Spicker, Medina Rotary Past President and Board Chairman of "The Society," introduced Medina Sunrise Rotary to his Executive Director Melanie Kasten-Krause and Development Director Jennifer Anzalone.
"The Society, formerly SHC, creates sustainable partnerships to support friends with disabilities within our community," said Melanie Kasten-Krause. The Society for Handicapped Citizens of Medina County, Inc. (SHC) has been providing services to individuals with disabilities and their families beginning in 1953, with Don and Ann Tubbs.  The Society provides a wide array of services, including Camp Paradise, residential group homes and in-home solutions, the Link Day Program and Personal Business Services, vocational and life skills training, with emphasis on helping individuals with disabilities maximize their independence and full potential as viable members of the community.
Jennifer Anzalone shared that The Society embraces the core values:  People First, Democracy, Visionary Leadership, Community Participation, Diversity, and Integrity and Excellence. The Society proudly advocates for human rights, personal dignity and community participation of individuals with developmental disabilities.  We’re able to facilitate this through legislative and social action, information and education and with the support of dedicated family members, friends, interested citizens, and professionals in the disability field.
