Together as a team we can help young adults with disabilities feel worthy of fitting in their communities and not being judge by their disabilities. All these young beautiful adults need is a chance where their potential is not minimized by what society considers normal.
These young adults want to work, have friends, and go on outings just like everyone else. Unfortunately, that's not always the case for them. Therefore, many find themselves with no opportunities, no friendships, and no environment that can accommodate their needs.
At KEVI 10 we have created a loving and caring environment where the CEO of "Together On Disabilities" Joanna Cruz has hands on experience with working with young adults with special needs. She herself is the mother of a young adult who is autistic. From many years of having to advocate for her daughter Kevi she knew their was a need to help others do the same.
Joanna is currently raising funds to be able to sponsor 10 young adults with disabilities. These funds will be used to take these young adults on field trips, do activities, and help their families with any unexpected expense that can potentially cause a hardship. Many families of young adults with special needs live on a fixed income and typically have no room for unexpected expenses.
This organization is trying to raise $30.000 to sponsor 10 young adults with special needs for one year. $3000 will be allocated to each young adult. These funds will be used to cover all expenses associated with their yearly sponsorship. At the end of the year these 10 young adults and families will participate in a graduation banquet ceremony where their families will be encouraged to maintain these friendships for their loved ones.
Together on Disabilities would really appreciate any donations made that can help this vision come true. Together we can make this happen. Thank you in advance for your consideration and support. Team work makes the dream work.
