Why I Support

I support ACT in honor of the tireless care given by dedicated employees to provide for individuals with developmental disabilities in the community. All donations will directly benefit those they care for. Don has worked for ACT for 26 years.

What I’m Doing

I am supporting my two favorite non-profit agencies with this challenge. I will foster a dog for Second Chance for every $50 dollar donation to ACT that I receive. Don has lifted his "we are empty nesters, no more fosters" ban for this challenge.

What We Do

ACT provides opportunities to individuals with disabilities as participating members of the community. Through our programs, people are able to find employment, live in their own homes, connect with their community, and explore new interests.

Why We're Great

For more than 40 years, ACT has been a leader in disability services. We put people first. We invite our community to be a part of our vision. Our unique approach to providing support ensures that each person has a meaningful experience.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

100% of your donation will go to the people who receive our services and will make a huge impact in their lives. For one person, it could mean they land their first job. For another, it could be a warm winter coat. We invest in all areas of life.
