I recently found My Possibilities and I am honored to be able to enhance their mission. If you are looking for a meaning organization who serves individuals with cognitive disabilities and provides a trademarked continued educational framework, this is the place to be! The HIPsters (Hugely Important People) are treated with dignity, the professional and well educated instructors are extremely passionate, the staff and Board of Directors are highly engaged and encourage innovation. If you are searching for a sustainable organization to place a special gift that will make transformational change, please consider My Possibilities.

I came to be apart of the MP team over two years ago. When I came I was staff member #14, and today we have 35 full time staff on the MP team. MP was serving 70 HIPsters at that time, today we serve 175 everyday. I have an active role with new families and there is not one story or circumstance that I have heard that humbles me. The sacrifices families in the DFW area make to have the higher level of programming for their adult is amazing.
Not only as a member of management but as a personal donor I expect nothing but the best for our HIPsters. I know what the state of Texas pays to serve our population but you would be surprised ..........
The dedication that the families, the staff, the Board of Directors, the volunteers and the community has is AMAZING!!!!!
You will not find a better organization to be associated with.
If you are ever in the area, stop by and I will personally will tour you!

I met the founders before My Possibilities was even in the grassroots stage. I have a son with disabilities, and though we are moving out of the area...I will still support them. I pray we find an organization similar to them where we are moving. They are dedicated to the WHOLE PERSON for their "HIPsters." The model of the organization is community incusive - and thus preparing for ongoing services well into the future.
