WILMINGTON, Del. – On Friday, September 12th, Lt. Governor Matt Denn has events in New Castle and Kent Counties.

He starts his day helping CHIMES celebrate their 20th anniversary with opening remarks. Chimes Delaware is one of the largest providers in Delaware of community services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and co-occurring disabilities. With services and supports provided throughout the State of Delaware, they tailor their services to the unique and changing needs and preferences of the person. CHIMES offers an array of services emphasizing choice and diversity of opportunities that span every stage of adult life, enabling participants to fulfill their goals and dreams and maximize their independence.

He then joins Governor Markell to highlight progress being made to support first-time Delaware mothers through home visitations by nurses. They will hold a discussion with nurses and staff of Children and Families First about the nurse-family partnership program with which the organization has been involved using federal funding. Through the national Nurse Family Partnership program, nurses visit first-time low-income mothers, and teach them how to care for their newborns. Attendees will discuss the success of the program and ways to address the ongoing challenges of the women served by it.

The Lt. Governor will bring greetings on behalf of the State at the Delaware Volunteer Firefighters Association Annual Luncheon.

Finally, the Lt. Governor is honored to emcee the AmeriCorps 20th Anniversary Celebration. On September 12th, AmeriCorps across the country will be swearing in the next cadre of volunteers, while celebrating the rich history of this wonderful organization. Lt. Governor Denn will be joined by the State Office of Volunteerism, as well as U.S. Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons.
