Empowerment: “The process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights.” As HELP Foundation’s many supporters know; we strive to empower individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities each and every day. To us, empowerment is job training and employment with fair pay, continuous education, living as independently as possible, and contributing to the community.
To ensure our continued success in empowering our consumers, we have to be sure to stay in motion with our fleet of handicap accessible vans. Whether we’re taking consumers to medical appointments, work, day programs or school, without our vans we cannot provide consumers with the vital services they need. Because our vans are continuously on the road, and provide transportation to numerous individuals they see a great deal of wear and tear.
This is where we invite you to help us empower! The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is referred to as Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is a movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the holiday season. For this special day, we’re rallying together to raise $5,000 to help offset the cost of two new handicap accessible vans we must purchase.
