Elf magic at Strive
The Strive@CRSI programs In Allen, Champaign and Clark Counties each had their own unique visitor throughout December. A little Elf magically appeared at the program sites to share in the day–to–day life at CRSI. Whether naughty or nice, the elves represent CRSI’s mission & philosophy of empowerment, independence and choice. Seen throughout the agency daily, the elves magically transformed themselves overnight only to be caught the next day, doing what they want to do.

According to Patricia Young, habilitation manager in Springfield, Elf Chloe Jewels helps everyday with learning life skills. “We are reminded each day that we can do anything and have fun, and that everyone is different and unique with something to give. Springfield: Elf Chloe Jewels says “I can do all these things.”
“Also reporting Elf activities are Danielle Buckney–Moore, assistant habilitation manager in Urbana and Melynda Morgan, habilitation manager in Lima.
