MCDS Celebrates 50 Years of Empowering People with Disabilities and Unveils a New Brand Identity

MCDS, an organization dedicated to empowering people with disabilities, proudly celebrates its 50th anniversary with a renewed commitment to community strength and inclusivity. The organization recently launched a new brand identity centered on the message, "Together We Thrive."

For the past fifty years, MCDS (Multi Community Diversified Services) has been guided by the belief that empowering individuals with disabilities leads to a stronger and more resilient community. This significant milestone not only reflects the organization's history but also serves as a testament to its unwavering dedication.

"This year marks our 50th anniversary—a milestone that speaks volumes about the resilience and dedication of this organization. But it's not just about looking back. We’re also looking forward to our next 50 years and thinking about how we can make the greatest difference for our clients and the McPherson community,” said Doug Wisby, CEO, MCDS. “I'm excited for what’s to come for MCDS. I believe in our work, our cause, and our community. Together, we’re not just thriving—we're setting the stage for another 50 years, where people with disabilities are full participants in a community that values their unique contributions."

MCDS's rebranding effort includes noticeable changes such as a new logo, signs, a fresh look for materials, and a redesigned website.

To engage the community in this celebration, MCDS will host an anniversary open house in April, with details announced to the public soon. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the organization's services, witness the impactful work of clients in the greenhouse and art classes, and explore the products available at Sunflower Mercantile.

Looking ahead, MCDS aims to reach more individuals, enhance programs and services, and expand residential housing. However, the core mission remains unchanged—to create an environment where the people they serve have the opportunity to live, work, and play with dignity and joy.
