I've been a Board Member and strong Supporter of My Possibilities for the past two years. I knew about it from involved parents before that, but it took being a part of the inner workings of the organization to really appreciate everything they do for developmentally challenged adults! Now that I've seen for myself all of their wonderful programs and how they impact the lives of this segment of the population, I am so proud to be a part of the organization. They are a caring, dedicated, well organized and efficiently run organization that fills a growing need within the Plano and Dallas community.
I have been involved with My Possibilities since 2009, and a Board member since 2012. I can honestly say that My Possibilities is a great organization, run by great people, with a great mission. The HIPsters (Hugely Important People) at My Possibilities are always at the center of every decision made and action taken - and the results show! The happiness and growth of each and every HIPster is truly amazing to see!
I can't overstate my pride and excitement to be involved with such a wonderful nonprofit.
As a Special Education teacher working with students who have cognitive disabilities I always worried about the graduating students having a good quality of life while maintaining dignity and being recognized for their giftedness. My Possibilities offers this opportunity by providing continuing education and participation in the community in a meaningful way. The Creative Arts program has helped to develop the HIPsters artistic, music and acting abilities. The Achieve Program offers instruction to increase vocational, social, independent living, and leadership skills. My Possibilities disproves the myth that people with disabilities "plateau" and cease to learn. These adults are constantly learning and are an inspiration to "typically developing" adults!
