I have only been volunteering here a short time as a dance teacher but my family has been volunteering with WeEmbrace for at least a year now. We love all the events they throw! The atmosphere is always loving and accepting. I truly recommend this non-profit for anyone looking to volunteer or for anyone looking for an inclusive experience!

I have been volunteering with WeEmbrace for about 1.5 years, involved in their dance activity, teaching dance to all Special Needs Kids and Adults. WeEmbrace cares for the individuals with disabilities and their families and does a great job of making them feel that they are supported.

For me - The one hour dance session I teach WeEmbrace kids/adults every week is genuinely my most satisfying time of the week. Thanks to WeEmbrace for creating the platform for people like me to be able to contribute a small part in the huge task they are working towards.

WeEmbrace has given the opportunities for my son that I never thought would be possible. He participates in multiple activities they organize such as arts, dance and social engagement. He gets opportunities to be on the stage to show off his talent. Parents support group is awesome the information that gets shared is invaluable.

WeEmbrace is like an extended family to us here in the Sacremento region. They create a lot of opportunities for our son, who is on the autism spectrum, to learn new skills, display his talent and most importantly interact with peers (both neuro-typical and with specials needs). We have benefited immensely through their different inclusive activities and other educative/informative sessions for the parents. Kudos to Meena, Som and the other office bearers for creating and running this wonderful initiative. Very lucky to be associated with it

Being a parent of special need kid, we are always on the lookout for any opportunity to help our kids. We found WE Embrace truly upholding their values - emphasis is on the possibilities . Living in southern California ,We were very impressed by passion and commitment of the We Embrace members in helping families and children with different abilities in Sacramento region. Following them closely for the last couple of years , we realize that through their activities like Arts, Dance, Yoga , Peer interactions, Siblings meetup etc, We Embrace enriches the lives of children with all abilities and their focus is not only on developing skills but on well being of the child and the family as a whole. They provide a perfect platform for the families and children to get together, to build friendship , community inclusion .It is heartwarming to see kids enjoying and successfully performing on the stage. We are very glad to be a part of We Embrace family now and looking forward for an exciting journey with them.

WeEmbrace is an organization that truly means what the name says. It embraces all of us, includes individuals with special needs and without special needs.
I wish we had more time to give for this organization. It gives everyone a chance to showcase the special talent to the world. This is one of the best non profit organizations that one could be part of. Thank you WeEmbrace for the opportunity!
