  • To Be Determined
What are three goals your organization has for this year?

This information will be on your profile. We encourage groups to think of this as a way to share what members will be working on, and what they can expect from your organization this year.

We want to 1) educate the community about various disabilities and the impact one can have on someone with a disability, 2) foster friendships and mentoring relationships for those who need it most, 3) provide creative, social environments for those with disabilities to thrive and grow in.
