We are raising money to benefit children and adults with Intellectual/Physical/Developmental disabilities. We aim to use the money to provide social, recreational and enrichment programs to them through WeEMBRACE.
All of the money raised will be put towards leasing this center, and allow us to offer in person enrichment programs and activities.
To raise $386,000 for covering expenses for 3 years.
To lease a center where we can provide programs for training/activities/classes and workshops in person and virtual.
We have been renting different facilities on an hourly basis for our programs, which has a lot of limitations. Funds raised will help us reach more families and offer more enrichment activities after school/day programs and on weekends for children/adults with disabilities.
