WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“Giving back to the community has always been important to me. I’ve realized that giving even a little of oneself, can mean the world to someone else. When my son, Amir, and I decided to start #Out’N’About I wondered if our participants and families would understand why this work is so important to me-despite not being the parent of a child with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
Many years ago as a young mother, I found myself in need of the kindness of strangers and was fortunate that someone cared enough to provide that small amount of help that I needed. For that very reason volunteering, donating, and community service have all become passions of mine and I am proud that these things are equally important to my son.
Together we are dedicating ourselves and this organization to shedding light on the importance of embracing and supporting young people with IDD. My career in finance & administration equips me with the skills to handle the business of #Out’N’About; my life experience keeps me personally motivated and honored to do this awesome work.”
