A Community-Minded Organization Where Every Citizen is Special!. To enhance the lives of Stone County residents with developmental disabilities, we are proud to announce the birth of a new organization, CHANCES of Stone County. WHAT IS A DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITY? A developmental disability is defined as a disability which is attributable to autism, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, a learning disability related to a brain dysfunction, or a similar condition which originated before age 22 and can be expected to continue indefinitely.
We provide scholarships for developmentally disabled citizens to attend Camp Barnabas summer camp.
We also provide two yearly scholarships to graduating high school seniors; one for a developmentally disabled citizens going to Barnabas Prep and the other for a student entering into the Special Education field.
