I fell in love with Nashua Center in 2010 at their Annual "Taste of the Towns" Fundraising event. I was new to NH & expressed an interest in getting involved w/the community, so a friend introduced me & I became a volunteer about 1 month prior to the event.

Everyone I met was pretty terrific from the start, but it was the presentation given at the event by Exec Dir - Brian Young that touched my heart, made me cry (along w/hundreds of other grown men & women sitting in the crowd that night) & ultimately reinforced that I found a very cool place to spend my time. Brian told a story about how a Dr of a local hospital was outraged when he learned that one of his sick patients did not have a DNR "Do Not Resuscitate" attached to their record. This was a young woman, who wasn't terminally ill, why on earth would she have a DNR?! The answer was simply b/c she was born with disabilities. That's all. The Dr who was suppose to treat her & help her feel better, publicly expressed his dismay for her disability! He felt that b/c she required a helping hand to accomplish her daily tasks, she was nothing more than a drain on society & shouldn't be given the dignity of life. It was 2010, not 1950! It was truly eye-opening!

Nashua Center educates the community about the value all people are able to make in the world. The person is seen first & the disability second. Every staff member I've met lives this philosophy & it's refreshing to be among people who treat other people with REAL dignity. I highly recommend everyone get to know this organization.
