All funds go to help support the programs and to develop new ones , purchase supplies, and to continue to offer meaningful activities to Children, Teens and adults to integrate into the community. Our goals is "TO EMPOWER INDIVIDUALS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS TO PARTICIPATE AND ACHEIVE SUCCESS FOR INDEPENDENCE IN THE COMMUNITY" by giving them the tools, encouragement and to beleive that they can do whatever they dream or have a passion for .

I am humbled everyday by their determination to live a full life and their joy at giving back to their time to volunteer to make life better for others .

Please watch for future items that students have made to sell as a means to support their fees to take the classes. We have no funding of any kind , just shear determination.
