Why Support Scully Learning Center:

Scully Learning Center is directly impacting the quality of life for teens and adults with developmental disabilities with enrichment activities free of safety and transportation obstacles, enabling them to get out of the house and expand their horizons, which strengthens our community. Soon Scully Learning Center will provide the first of its kind residential setting for developmentally delayed adults who have never lived outside the family home. The preserving Families Home will allow developmentally disabled siblings to continue residing together when their family of origin is no longer able to provide for the care. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that strives to create a supportive and empowering community where individuals with disabilities can thrive and lead fulfilling lives alongside their loved ones.

We’re committed to a fiscally sustainable business model that will pay for the construction of our Preserving Families Home as well as support the expansion of our vision into other communities around the country.

Our model enables a smooth and comfortable transition out of the forever family home for physically and developmentally disabled adults into supportive housing when their family is no longer able to provide for their residential needs. By supporting Scully Learning Center, you not only improve the lives of our members, you strengthen the fabric of our community as a whole.

First Annual Scully Learning Foundation Chili Cook-Off

September 28, 2024

We are thrilled to host our first-annual Chili Cook-Off on Saturday, September 28, 2024, at The Holland Center in Scottsdale.

At our inaugural Chili Cookoff, you will experience:

  • celebrity and top chefs from area restaurants serving their special chili recipes
  • leaders and citizens also taking part in dishing up their mom’s famous recipes (or their own favorites!)
  • an enticing silent auction with a variety of quality items
  • insight into community resources and treatment options for Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and many other Developmental Disorders by Developmental Disability Community Experts
  • plus, a recipe book showcasing these delicious chili recipes will be available for sale!

Proceeds from the Chili Cook-Off will help fund the creation of the Scully Residential Center; an innovative group home that will serve as a national model for adults with physical and developmental disabilities who are transitioning from lifelong familial residential placement to a nurturing residential setting that supports a familiar, comfortable quality of life.
