Celebrating Inclusive Clubs

In 1956, Civitan officially dedicated itself to the cause of serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The decision transformed the mission of the organization and inspired service to the Special Olympics, The Children’s Miracle Network, and ultimately the creation of the Civitan International Research Center. Inclusive clubs have become an integral part of the larger Civitan organization and their dedication to fellowship and service should be an inspiration for members everywhere.
