GIVING

It’s been an exciting year as we’ve completed the first phase of the ourHOME mission. As we’ve met with many leaders serving our local special needs community, it’s clear that the mission of ourHOME will fill a critical need for adults with special needs and their families.

If this is your first exposure to our mission, we hope you’ll want to learn more. If ourHOME resonates with you, we hope you’ll consider getting involved—with your advocacy, your time, and your financial support.

Please consider supporting those with special needs in our community by partnering with ourHOME as you plan your end-of-year charitable contributions and 2024 giving. With your help, we can accomplish our vision of creating COMMUNITY, empowering LIFE for those in our community with special needs.

Amanda Owens, Executive Director
