My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for ConnectAbility, Inc., Dahlonega, GA, USA
I am proud to serve as the Secretary on the Board of Directors for ConnectAbility, Inc. This organization is dedicated to the inclusion of individuals with disabilities, helping them feel valued and empowered. I come from a background in Special Education through a local school system, and I direct many parents and students to ConnectAbility. My role in education is identifying preschool students with delays in development, and many times parents are devastated to learn that their child might be different. But different isn't less. Different isn't worse. Different is just that - different. We are all different and ConnectAbility seeks to to help all people find their commonality among many differences. Attend just one event (from workshops, fundraisers, community events, or respite events) and you'll feel a sense of purpose in your own life and the lives of others that you just can't get elsewhere.
