I can state that Michigan Disability Rights Coalition is one of the most honest, hard working, and caring non profit organizations I have ever had the blessing to be a part of. The depths the staff reach for and obtain are amazing. I love that there is not one single person that gets turned away. They fight for the rights for so many, and it has no bias. Black, White, Red, Yellow, Straight, Homosexual, Heterosexual, Blind, Deaf, the list goes on and on and not one person has ever been turned away because of what others may call a handicap, disability, or the wrong way of thinking. I will stand behind MDRC and all it stands for. This is an amazing organization that deserves recognition.

My family and I have participated in the fundraisers held by MDRC and I am amazed at the team effort by the staff and the joy of the clients each and every time. Most people have no idea what it takes to hold fundraisers, especially in this economy, but, this organization is just amazing. I wish there were more we could do to bring forth more opportunity for the clients and more recognition of what exactly MDRC does so more grant money can be had. Keep up the amazing work. We will support you everytime!

A recent illness left me paralyzed and unable to function normally or provide an income to support my family or myself. It has been a nightmare! I have had to depend upon the kindness of strangers. When I had nowhere else to turn, Michigan Disability Rights Coalition was there to help me. See their work in motion here: http://www.copower.org/ . You never know what can happen in life. I now do volunteer work for this great organization. Anyone with disabilities or those who plan to grow older should take two minutes to investigate this cause! Don’t wait until it is too late! My best wishes that you are well and happy, ~ Gary Allum
