Do-all has done a wonderful job in promoting community awareness of their organization and the mission they support. The staff, volunteers and CEO all are actively involved in the promotion of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities to be totally included in the employment field and in all aspects of life.
A wonderful organization that has helped to boost the morale and well being of many people in the Bay City Michigan area
Do All is a wonderful non-profit organization that does so much for the community. I highly recommend that your support any of their businesses.
I had the pleasure of being able to be an employee with this wonderful organization. I live in a town with the same type of organization but the heart of Do-All tends to stand out more than anything. I worked directly with the employee group that is in training. I tell you what, they should NOT be called disabled in any shape or form. They are people with heart and soul like you and me that are VERY ABLE and just may need some guidance and closer instruction at times. But don't we all at one time or another? I never felt more loved or accepted at a place of employment or more comfortable than the way the trainees made me feel. I had so much fun and learned so much with this employer to last me forever. I made a great group of friends and collegues that I have the total utmost respect for this company. There may have been a couple of bad apples, but this company is all about making LIFE better for everyone in this world. It deserves the best and they continue to strive to do more everyday!! Thank you Do-All!!!!
Do-All, Inc has become the premier community rehabilitation organization providing services in Bay City. The collaborative mind set and creativity of the staff and administration lead to contuinuous improvement and enhanced positive outcomes for persons with disabilities.
Several years ago I was fortunate to work with many people who were employed by Do-All. At the time I was a Support Service Director for one of their Competitors. Together, we joined together to help educate the community on the services we provided. We formed an informal panel to answer questions on how we could improve our services. I visited Do-All on many occations. I was impressed with the Admin. and Staff of Do-All. Always stepping up to the plate to better serve their clients. Even though that was 5 years ago and I live outside of the area. I keep in touch with past clients and co-workers and providers who currently work for/with D0-All. It seems they still strive to find the perfect job matches, job skills, evaluations, and bonified care that the industry has to offer. I have seen first hand how services are delivered in other States as well as those in Western and Southern Michigan. It's apparent that Do-All has overcome some of the more difficult areas in which many of their competitors across the Nation struggle. For example, Transition Services, Transportation, Creating Community Awareness, Bonified Evaluation and Outcomes and last but not least, It seems that Do-All continues to learn from their consumers and their providers/families. Bay County is Lucky to have them.
I have witnessed Do-All's work in many ways. As an educator, I had the pleasure of working with the Do-All staff while finding community placements following graduation. I am the Director of a non Profit that collaborates with Do-All on a daily basis, seeing first hand the manner in which clients are provided community experiences and employment As a parent of a Do-all employee, I can attest to the positive change that Do-all has made in her self esteem and daily well being. Our daughter truly enjoys her employment and looks forward to each new day at work.
DoAll is a professionally run organization serving the Disability Community. They strive to provide the community with many opportunities. They work with other organizations to better the community, especially those with disabilities. The staff and volunteers are leaders, and very caring. The services they provide to the community are superior and well organized. They give people with disabilities dignity and provided work opportunities. They provide material asssistance to the community.
I am writing this letter in hope that you will somehow receive wider recognition for the valuable work you have done in the community particularly with the physically and developmentally handicapped. I have witnessed first hand the difference that Do-All is making in the community and in people’s lives. The two Cat’s Meow locations are a tremendous success providing much needed relief for folks in need and a charitable portal for those able to give. In short, it is clear that your programs are exceptional and have blossomed over the years as a direct result of the commitment you, your staff, and your board tirelessly provide. I have seen many organizations come and go over the years, but I have never seen one have the positive lasting impact on a community more than Do-All has had on Bay City and the surrounding region.
I am the director of a non-profit organization and work closely with Chris Girard through our state association. I have toured the facility and have found the staff at Do-All very welcoming and accomodating. Chris and his staff are always looking for new and innovative ways to provide services to their consumers.
I am a retired director of a local United Way. I have been associated with Do All Inc. for 23 years. During that time I have been impressed with the ability of Do All Inc. to work with their clients to encourage and train them to become fully integrated within the community. They have also worked with the community, namely, the Chamber of Commerce, United Way, Intermediate School District, local Boards of Education and other community organizations to develop programs and policies that allowed persons with disabilities to participate fully in all aspects of the community. As a result, many of their clients have had enriched educational experiences, are gainfully employed and living independent lives. Others who need a more structured environment, have work and living programs that are more supervised. I look back on my working relationship with Do All as a rewarding experience.
