Funding

Funding Overview

As a non-profit organization, we work hard to make every dollar count. Whether it is our operating grant, a $5.00 membership payment or donated labor and/or materials, every contribution is vital to achieving our goal of giving the right tools to people with disabilities to allow them to live as independently and as fully involved in the community as they choose to be.

 

Funding Details

The grants we receive through the Department of Education, Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency, and the United Way allow us to offer our core services of information and referral, peer support, independent living skills training and advocacy. They also allow us to provide funding toward home modifications and assistive technology. Those, however, only tell part of the story. Not to be underestimated at all are the contributions we receive from groups and individuals just like you. Groups like GAP Ministries, Kingdom Builders and Christian Men’s Fellowship partner with us by providing labor to build ramps in several counties. In fact, over the past year the generosity of these groups contributed over two-thirds of the funding we received outside of grants, thus allowing us to serve even more consumers. Gifts from corporate donors, groups and individuals comprised the remainder. We fully realize that these are difficult economic times for everyone; however no donation is too small. Whether you can contribute $1.00, $10.00, or “Adopt-a-Ramp”, we guarantee that your donation will make a lasting impact in the life of a person with a disability and in the community.
