The Hovey Family, Remarkable Damar Family

Most families would find it difficult to imagine the challenges facing a family when a child has a developmental disability. They might find it even harder to imagine being able to rally the relentless hope and perseverance that, sometimes, can help that child grow into a bright and energetic person. The Hovey Family knows that journey well: Their son Matt has come a long way and is now taking college classes … classes that he pays for in part by selling a joke book he wrote titled “1000 One-Liners.”

Damar 50th Anniversary

As Damar celebrates its 50th year, we look back on a lot of changes. It only makes sense: Simply surviving for a half century requires an organization to adapt, but an organization like Damar, which strives continually to innovate and improve, must do more than adapt. It must embrace change as a part of its mission.
