SJN SMILE 9th Annual 5K Race and One Mile Walk/Run at Lilburn City Park Saturday, May 4th, 2019

St. John Neumann Catholic Church is supporting this non-profit agency in Lawrenceville with its ninth annual 5K Run at Lilburn City Park. SMILE provides supported living services to Developmentally Disabled adults in our community. SMILE works with individuals, their family members, and other providers to ensure the individual’s needs are met.

A generation ago, people with developmental disabilities were shunned by their communities and sent off to institutions. We have made progress in the last 50 years. However, they are still very vulnerable and need support to live in the community. Family members simply want a safe and comfortable environment for their “loved one” when they are no longer able to care for them. SMILE was created to enable adults with developmental disabilities to live in the community in a family atmosphere.
