GREEN — On Nov. 13, Hattie Larlham hosted a grand-opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony for its newest and fifth Constant Companions location at 2778 Greensburg Road, Suite E.

Summit County Executive Russ Pry, Green Mayor Dick Norton, Summit County Community and Economic Development Director Connie Kraus and Warmus Builders President John Warmus attended the ceremony.

During the ceremony, Stephanie Michl, manager of Constant Companions, said this location is aimed at serving seniors with developmental disabilities and age-related medical conditions, allowing the organization to further expand its ability to meet the needs of people in Summit County with developmental disabilities. Hattie Larlham Constant Companions will eventually serve more than 20 people with developmental disabilities and age-related medical conditions on a daily basis, according to Constant Companions officials.

Ribbon-cutting participants are shown above.

Constant Companions is an alternative to traditional work or day programs for people with developmental disabilities, according to Constant Companions officials.
