Donations and Fundraising

We are always so grateful to those who donate their finances, items, and time! We always have opportunities for you to help us in the way that suits you the best, so please take a look at how you can help us below!

Donate Financial Resources

Help provide activities and opportunities to those we serve through your financial investment. We need help to provide special occasions, holiday gifts, send persons supported to athletic competitions, pay for end of life expenses, upgrade technology, furnish assistive devices and much more. Whether it’s a one-time investment or a recurring monthly or quarterly donation, we assure you it will make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
