July 1st, 2024

On the 4th of July, people with disabilities will join their fellow Americans in celebrating the independence of our great country. This celebration communicates that independence is an important  part of our 'pursuit for happiness,' as stated in our constitution.

 

This pursuit of happiness also applies to people who have disabilities. However they need our help! As stakeholders in their care, our role is to help them become more independent so they can begin their pursuit of happiness. 

 

For people who have a disability, independence can be something as simple as integrating themselves in the community, preparing a meal before going to bed, or communicating their wants and needs to medical professionals or governmental powers. It’s important that we look at this holiday as a beacon that sheds light on the importance of independence.

 

Recently, our friends at Dollar Tree (located on Ramsen Ave in Brooklyn NY) provided the opportunity for our “individuals' to volunteer in their store. The goal was for them to gain work experience and learn how to become more independent in their everyday lives. They learned how to greet customers, stock store shelves and work with their peers as a team.

 

As a result of this exciting experience, our individuals continue to grow and become more independent in their communication, community integration and work skills. This we believe will help them pursue happiness which

The 4th Of July represents.
