Kids On The Block was honored by having our founder, Alva Duke, speak to their organization.

...
Alva Duke, founder of Kids On The Block, shared her passion about the organization she founded in 1981 after her son was born with Downs' Syndrome. Her own lack of experience with people with disabilities gave her this impetus to bring Kids On The Block to Middle Tennessee with the goal of helping younger kids grow up with an awareness and sensitivity to children who are regular kids but just "do things differently" and "to recognize and embrace those differences."
