Our origin story is on the home page and, although brief, describes the basic beginnings of the organization. After deciding to pursue this non-profit, others were recruited to supplement areas of weakness and who have similar desires to volunteer and donate their time and expertise to a very worthwhile cause.
Establishing firm roots is a basic necessity to successfully achieving our mission. Our mission is to assist and empower children with disabilities and their families to lead informed well balanced lives by providing and facilitating connections to community resources, information provision, volunteer training and one on one and group programs.
Our first supporters and donors are also part of those roots and have already helped us pursue our mission. As the majority of the board are non-profit neophytes, it has proven to be impertinent to ask and accept help from those who know better. As part of our first blog series, we are going to not only provide information and biographies on our founding board members but also highlight some of the early donors to our project. We truly appreciate the support of our community!
