This picture explains who we are and what we believe in. We provide opportunities in physical fitness, leadership and community to children of all races, ages, ethnicities and intellectual differences while removing the financial barriers.
In Today's new normal, these financial barriers are more prevalent then ever before. More youth are currently confined to their homes due to many factors such as limited opportunities, higher costs for participation and lost of family income.
I am asking for your help as DEFYI (pronounced ‘defy’) seeks to remove those barriers - DDS Enrichment Foundation for Youth Inclusion.
DEFYI - A nonprofit that seeks to cultivate healthy lifestyles for youth (special needs & neurotypical) through year-round sports training and competition in an inclusive and safe environment by providing opportunities in physical fitness, leadership and community while keeping financial barriers low.
How can you help? Donations received will help provide opportunities to youth that otherwise may not have them to train, compete, socialize and gain valuable leadership skills with their peers. Donations will also give us the ability to hold workshops, purchase needed equipment and supplies for the youth (uniforms, shoes, etc), and create an online presence to reach as many families in need as possible.
Respectfully I ask for your support today. Also if you are interested in assisting or partnering with this organization, please message me. Our goal and mission is completely focused on the youth and equal access for them in our community. Any support is welcomed.
Creating Opportunities by Removing Barriers.
