Everyone Deserves a Place to Belong: 2018 Annual Appeal

Friends Life is proudly celebrating its 10th year of providing a place for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to belong!

Finding a place to belong to foster one’s fullest potential as an individual is a vital human need for each of us. Our Friends found support through the years in the education system. But what happens after graduation when the extra opportunities and support are no longer an option? Where do they belong?

“As a founding board member and parent of one of the first “Friends,” I feel Friends Life has exceeded our expectations. Not only is it a day program that our daughter Katie loves, but an organization that truly loves and supports us in every way. Katie successfully moved into her own condo a month ago and has been working at the same job for almost two years. The quality of her life is better than we ever could have imagined and it could not have happened without Friends Life.” ~ Debbie and Karl

At Friends Life, Katie has found a place to belong alongside her peers. A place to build friendships, develop job and life skills, and try new things like visual arts and drama. A place to become more confident, more responsible, and more productive. A place that empowers her to be an active member in the community who gives back through her talents and time.

As the year comes to an end, I kindly ask that you consider making a 100% tax deductible gift to Friends Life. Your gift will create opportunities for our Friends to develop socially, grow personally, and enjoy community as they experience life together.
