Past Events

Take a look at some of our past events below!

The Division of Developmental Disabilities Services held our sixth annual fall food and craft fair on Friday, October 7, 2022. This event showcases handmade products by artists from all five Human Development Centers and numerous community providers across the state of Arkansas. Porch signs, handwoven rugs, magnets, plants, wreaths, and jewelry were just a few of the items available for purchase. The weather was perfect and our artists even received a surprise visit from Governor Asa Hutchinson and the First Lady.

 

Even though this event is held once a year, unique gifts from these artists can be found year-round in The Blue Umbrella.

6th Annual Fall Food & Craft Fair

SEAHDC launches book written by residents

Residents at the Southeastern Arkansas Human Development Center in Warren, AR have been busy writing a book titled, "Snowflakes." The inspiration for the book came from the desire to show how individuals with developmental disabilities are each unique, just like snowflakes.

 

Each page features a different residents handprint and a few interesting facts 

The book launched on Friday, August 26th, with residents on hand to autograph the first copies sold.

2022 Blue Umbrella Farmer's Market

Our five Human Development Centers do amazing work to harvest the produce and plants and create the one-of-a-kind crafts that are sold at these markets, and food proceeds from the event supported the HDC Resident Holiday Gift Fund.

 

It was a beautiful day and a wonderful opportunity to pick up some fresh fruits, vegetables, plants, yummy jam and to meet with a few of our clients.
