Developmentally disabled kids come from all walks of life. But the one thing they all need is a shot at becoming the best they can be.
Unfortunately, their facility in Inglewood, California, is too small and too old to do the job. (Kind of like my French teacher in high school.) So AbilityFirst is putting together a capital campaign. And guess who’s helping them by designing the identity package, brochure, and other communications tools?
The theme is Building Independence. Celebrating Community. And the goal is to raise $5 million to build a new Joan and Harry A. Mier Center so that the job of educating, training and housing disabled kids and adults, and offering support and counseling for their families, can continue. So far, so good.
AbilityFirst (which used to be known as the Crippled Children’s Society) can be explored here. Wonderful folks doing wonderful work.
