Exceptional People Committee: Looking for Suggestions

Exceptional People Committee: Looking for Suggestions

The Exceptional People Committee is trying to find ways to better the lives of people in our town who have special needs, in the areas of social, educational, training and vocational opportunities, transportation, housing, and care services. We believe that New Castle children have access to services of the school system and other organizations, and we have had much input concerning children.

Now we would like to hear from New Castle adults with special needs or from their supporters. We want to know the size of our population, and the range of abilities. And please let us know what is missing or needed (gaps in services, unmet needs) that could be provided, to improve life for adults with special needs or disabilities.

Possibilities include opportunities for exercise, such as:

  • hiking/bike path meetups
  • yoga
  • library book discussion groups
  • classes in woodworking
  • arts
  • music
  • participation in volunteer group

These and any other suggestions are welcome. Please email the Exceptional People Committee at ExceptionalPeopleCommittee@MyNewCastle.org with your suggestions.
