Yesterday I went to Stephen’s Bi-Annual meeting at AABR. Of course Stephen is doing excellent in his program and continues to progress however because of budget cuts and New York State’s refusal to increase funding to agencies/organizations like AABR All the Art Programs have been eliminated and Stephen’s job program has been greatly reduced.
Stephen gets a sense of purpose from his work but because there is not enough staff to accompany him to his job site he cannot go to the various workplaces in Queens that give him so much satisfaction. We can no longer rely on government funding to fill in the gaps.
I am providing a donation opportunity. Please help developmentally disabled/Autism adults. For those of you who belong to or regularly attend a House of Worship/Church please consider sharing this appeal with your Pastor/Rev & Congregation.
Thank you for donating to AABR.
