It is that time of year to do an Adult Social Group Activity! It has been some time since we had an activity and that is due in part to some changes being made to the format of the adult group. The group is going in a new direction and back to being more of a social event for our adults in care and their providers. We at APTCH want to make sure we are listening to our adults and doing things they enjoy. We will still be doing some advocacy pieces at the request of our adults but have found the adults really enjoyed the previous gatherings where they could be social and out in the community having fun. With that being said we will be having a community event at

Where: Dave and Busters, Tempe Town Lake

When: October 21, 2017 from 1:30pm-4:00pm.

Who: This event is open to all of our adults in care, their providers and their families.

Please check your email and with your family specialists as the flyer have been sent to all of our ADH providers via email. We are looking forward to this event and hope to see everyone there.
