Review for ConnectAbility, Inc., Dahlonega, GA, USA
ConnectAbility is a wonderful organization that provides support to children and adults with disabilities (and their families) - but they do so much more. While they provide events for families to attend, sibling support groups, parent events, and fundraising opportunities, the true goal of ConnectAbility is to empower individuals to use their abilities to make the world a better place.
As a participant, you get to experience a variety of activities, like a talent show, movie nights, spring carnival, VBS in the summer, a costume contest, and a Christmas party. Other opportunities include the Thousand Words project, where participants are paired with photographers to produce artwork that speaks when words are often lacking, or the Race for a Reason, where participants are paired with athletes to complete in running, biking, and swimming events around Georgia. As a volunteer, you get the unique opportunity to work with individuals with disabilities, but soon, you start to see them as we see everyone else - for their abilities and their contributions.
If you are looking for a place to volunteer your time, or if you are looking for a place to experience true joy, both can be found at ConnectAbility.
