INTRODUCING...CIVITAN INTERNATIONAL IMPACT AREAS

Civitans across the world further our mission of supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities through four core areas – Health & Wellness, Family & Community Support, Education & Employment, and Accessible & Inclusive Communities.

A GLOBAL IMPACT

Civitan International is a global organization impacting lives at the grass roots level through local service clubs. Members of Civitan share a Servant’s Heart and a desire to create positive change for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.

A CENTURY OF SERVICE

Founded in Birmingham, Alabama in 1917, Civitan expanded rapidly into a global force for change. The message of good citizenship rooted in compassion, service, and respect for people in need is just as important today as it was on our first day more than a century ago.

A FOCUS ON RESEARCH

The Civitan International Research Center is the flagship program of Civitan International. Deeply rooted in the core mission of Civitan—serving people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities—the CIRC conducts cutting edge research in brain-related issues such as autism, rett syndrome, down syndrome and many others. Civitan International is the only service organization dedicated to these issues which affect one in six people worldwide.

CIVITAN LIFE

In June, the Pensacola Civitan Club constructed a 31-foot ramp for a 66-year-old woman in Pensacola who suffers from Aphasia and early onset Alzheimer's and is occasionally wheelchair bound. The construction took two days and was funded by St. John Knights of Columbus, Joe Black, and the Pensacola Civitan Club.

Today's history fact is about Campus Civitan.

In 1958, Civitan International began to officially charter Campus Civitan Clubs (originally known as Collegiate Civitan Clubs). Four clubs were chartered this year. In the following year, seven more clubs were added. While during this time Campus clubs shared purposes and projects with Junior Civitan and Civitan International there was one area in which Campus Clubs differed from the senior clubs. At that time women still were not admitted to the ranks of the senior Civitan Clubs. In comparison, Campus clubs allowed female members.

Triangle Luncheon Civitan Club presented two Servant’s Heart Awards at their annual picnic on April 26th. Each awardee received the Love trivet made by club members Jim and Linda Farley and a monetary gift.

The Servant's Heart Awards is Civitan International's global awareness project that offers our clubs the ability to honor someone in their community who supports individuals with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities.
