Meet Golf Classic Ambassador 2019 Maxwell McGlothen

Meet Golf Classic Ambassador 2019 Maxwell McGlothen

Maxwell

Maxwell is a beautiful, affectionate, charismatic four-year-old and is the light of his parents’ eyes, and everyone who meets him. He loves tigers, trucks, his family, and learning new things every day.

At a mere 10 months old, Maxwell’s pediatrician sent him to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital for global development delays as he just wasn’t hitting the milestones an infant should be. He has been to several specialists throughout his time there, with the most recent being at the neuromuscular clinic to seek an answer as to why he has such low muscle tone preventing him from standing, walking or simply just speaking clearly on his own.

While we do not have a diagnosis today, we know that he is improving with the help from Abilities First. He attends the Early Learning Center for preschool and daycare. He also has a need for their Pediatric Therapies Program. He is cared for through Occupational, Physical and Speech Therapy on a weekly basis and he is making great strides with the Abilities Frist therapists and teachers. We do not know where we would be today without their help and support.

The folks at Abilities First Independence Center experienced some excitement today!

The folks at Abilities First Independence Center experienced some excitement today as the neighboring building at 1001 Grove Street was removed. Hope House Mission is constructing a new multi-million dollar facility to serve as a men's facility. According to Hope House Board President Carla Messer, safety is their priority. "Relationships with local law enforcement ensures that police will be driving by the facility regularly to keep would-be dealers away from the property, she said.” Empty buildings breed illicit activities and replacing the deteriorating building with a new facility designed to transform lives should add stability to the neighborhood," she added. Thanks to Abilities First for allowing the transfer of property ownership to the Hope House Mission.
