During the holiday season, the Developmental Disabilities (DD) staff collaborated with the DD Parent Support Group, Padres Unidos, to host their annual Posada Celebration at the Weekes Community Center in Hayward. This is a cultural celebration where families get together to celebrate a posada, which is a reenactment of the procession of Joseph and Mary awaiting for the birth of Jesus.
At the posada, DD clients and their family members got together to celebrate this special time of year, and were able to enjoy delicious cultural foods, such as tamales and ponche. More than 50 families attended the celebration and were able to embrace their cultural backgrounds in an evening filled with love and joy. The DD staff collaborated with the parent support group in planning the event and participating the day of the event to make sure the celebration was successful.
