We were pleased to have The Sparrow Project and Moore Faith Medical Clinic as our charity partners for the 2020 Gallery of Homes at Rivendell.
The Sparrow Project is a non-profit organization promoting happy and fulfilled lives of adults with intellectual disabilities. The organization began when a few families of young adults with intellectual disabilities began discussing the limitations their adult children will face after high school graduation. The Sparrow Project believes that everyone has worth and deserves the opportunity to have a meaningful life. They fulfill their mission through two programs – Sparrow University and NEST. Sparrow University offers bi-weekly arts & crafts, music classes, sports, cooking lessons and volunteer opportunities at little to no charge. NEST hosts monthly social events, including sporting events, theater outings, picnics and dances.
The Sparrow Project Moore Faith Medical Clinic was founded in 2015 by a group of friends who had worked for two years helping the community recover from the tragic Moore tornado in May 2013. They launched this free clinic after recognizing a need to help the uninsured and underserved in Moore.
Moore Faith Medical Clinic’s mission is to share the love of Christ in a holistic and tangible way through faith-based free medical care. The organization focuses on loving and serving the community while seeing the God-given dignity of each human life. Over the last 5 years, the clinic has seen more than 5,000 patients, provided $4 million in free prescription medications and provided more than $6 million worth of care for those in the community.
