A few weeks ago I was asked if I could volunteer some time and photography to Marbridge Villa in Manchaca. I have seen the Marbridge sign on FM 1626 many times, but didn’t know what it was. When I went to their website I learned that Marbridge is a residence for adults with cognitive challenges. The campus is beautiful and they focus on their residents abilities and offer many programs for enrichment and entertainment. On my first visit to view the facility, I walked in and the residents were having a Margarita Party (no alcohol of course) and everyone was smiling and happy. When I walked in, I didn’t know what to expect. When I walked out, my heart was happy.
I went back a few days later to capture the visit of Lady and Lucy Lu, two Standard Poodles and their owners, who make weekly visits to residents. It is an amazing thing to watch interaction between people and dogs. These two dogs bring so much enthusiasm and excitement.
I very much enjoyed my visit and am looking forward to my next visit for more events at Marbridge. When I took the images in on Monday, I took the kiddos with me and they got to say hello to several residents, which was enriching for everyone.
