Roll, Stroll & Run – NEW DATE – SEPT 12, 2020

Roll, Stroll & Run – NEW DATE – SEPT 12, 2020

After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone the 29th Annual Roll Stroll & Run to Saturday, September 12th, 2020.  It is our hope that we will be able to offer a fun, safe event for all of our participants, staff, consumers, and families by that time.

Indian Creek Foundation’s 29th annual Roll, Stroll & Run will take place on Saturday, September 12th, in Souderton. This charity ride/walk/race typically draws nearly 300 participants and volunteers from all over Southeastern PA and NJ. With scenic and challenging courses of 62, 40, 20 and 10 miles, this event has something for cyclists of all skill levels. There are also 5k and 1k courses for walkers! This year’s 5K race will feature prizes in several age groups, ranging from youth through seniors!  Afterwards, participants can enjoy an all-you-can-eat picnic buffet, live music, games, tours of our campus, and many other fun activities. This event is sure to be fun for the entire family.

In addition to being one of the biggest community events of the year, it is also Indian Creek Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser. Indian Creek Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides services for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.   Proceeds from this year’s event will be used to make necessary renovations in several of our 24 residential care homes.  After registering, you will have the opportunity to create your own fundraising page to encourage your friends help us reach our goal of a new kitchen.

By participating in Roll Stroll & Run, and by encouraging others to sponsor your efforts, you are making a difference in the lives of the individuals that Indian Creek Serves.

ICF Launches New Personalized Employment Program

ICF Launches New Personalized Employment Program

The Day Services Program of Indian Creek Foundation recently kicked off the new Personalized Employment Program to assist with placing their clients in job settings that meet their interests.

Indian Creek’s employment professionals perform a comprehensive assessment of a client’s interests and skills. This process identifies the strengths that the client already possesses; and our employment professionals assist the client in negotiating a work relationship that match the employers need to those strengths, skills, interest.

Consumers have begun taking part in the Personalized Employment Program and Indian Creek is ready to begin finding employment opportunities.  ICF is currently seeking employment partners in the following areas, but not limited to:

Music (recording/sales), Transportation, Sports, Automotive, Fitness, Brewing, and Pet Care.

The program seeks to provide a win-win outcome for the employer and the client. Employment can range from a few hours to a full day’s work.

For more information, or to schedule an appointment with the Employment staff, please contact:
