The Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce held back-to-back Ribbon-Cutting ceremonies for two new Network of Community Options facilities.

Network of Community Options (NCO) is a family-oriented organization working for people with developmental challenges. NCO fulfills its mission by providing services based on the core values: PRIDE — Patience, Respect and Responsibility, Integrity, Dignity, and Empowerment. 

Attendees enjoyed a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house at Network of Community Options’ new headquarters at 555 East Main Street in Batesville. 

“Network of Community Options has been proud to serve this community for over forty-nine years,” said NCO Executive Director Lisa Pinkston. “We provide services for adults and children with developmental disabilities.”

They also cut a ribbon at NCO’s New Directions facility, located at 285 East College Street in Batesville. New Directions is an NCO adult day treatment program encouraging individuals to strive to improve all areas of their daily living skills. The New Directions curriculum includes computer skills, functional math and reading, social and communication skills, budgeting, home safety and maintenance, physical fitness, nutrition, and other activities.
