Description:
The growth of St. Michael 's House continues. In Ballymun, a new Child Development and Assessment Clinic and Training Centre, have been opened. In Templeogue, a new adult special care unit has been opened in Cheeverstown House, and a new Group Home at Raheny. The Association looks after more than seven hundred mentally handicapped persons on a daily basis and through its clinics makes over three thousand patient contacts annually. The needs of our mentally handicapped call for continued and greater effort. That effort must be directed towards ensuring that, when their disabilities permit it, our handicapped children and adults remain in the community. This means more group homes, workshops and care units. And so, St. Michael 's House calls for the continued help of its dedicated staff, members and friends, to assist in providing the services to which our handicapped are entitled.
