You Are the Difference

posted by Katie Slade on Friday, July 17, 2015

In 2013, only 17.6% of persons with a disability were employed.* For persons served by EPI you helped countless persons with disabilities realize their dream to work in the community.

Because of you, John has earned a position working at a local plumbing business. In order for John to be ready to work, he needed training, a job coach, and transportation.

With your help, John received the services he needed to find a job. A place where he can belong and contribute. John’s supervisor stated, “John’s positive attitude enlightens other people’s day.”

Whether you donated to the Exceptional Persons Foundation, attended our More Than You See event, or donated to the Giving Tree, we cannot thank you enough. Your gifts touch the lives of many and make a significant difference.

The following services are only made possible because of your generosity.

  • Children’s Services - You’ve provided rest for caregivers and offered great services for children.
  • Employment Services - You’ve made it possible for businesses to partner with EPI and provided meaningful employment opportunities to persons with disabilities.
  • Essential Needs Fund - You’ve supplied groceries, medications, clothing, emergency child care, rent assistance, and much more to persons in need.

These services depend on people like you. Thank you for all you have done.
