Your Help Is Urgently Needed!

A young Atlanta woman needs your help tonight.  Emily (not her real name) is a young single mother of two, a one and a two-year-old. She’s also expecting her third child in the next few months. Emily is living with several developmental disabilities and receives support services from All About Developmental Disabilities in order to live a meaningful life independently in the community.

But on the night of March 30 her apartment caught fire and she lost all her possessions. AADD is working to find her a place to live and replace her clothes, furniture, toys for the kids, etc.  But we need your help as we raise $7,500 to cover the cost of what Emily will need to get back on her feet.

Click on the “Donate Now” button below and enter the amount you’d like to donate to Emily.  No amount is too small.

Help us help Emily!

Integration.

Stability.

Independence.

 

For many of the children, adults, and families living with developmental disabilities, AADD can mean the difference between stability and homelessness, illness and health, isolation and inclusion, discrimination and dignity.

You can play a major role in helping us ensure that no family is ever turned away. Your donation can make it possible for us to provide family support, employment services and community integration opportunities. AADD is a 501 (c)(3) Georgia non-profit organization.

Your donations help to:

  • Support individuals and their families who need housing, help paying utilities bills, food, and key household items like cleaning supplies, linens, kitchen utensils, car seats, booster chairs, baby clothes, and formula.
  • Conduct important workshops on topics like special needs trusts, sexuality, transition, employment, and self-directing waiver funds.
  • Provide support services to families in crisis.
  • Provide scholarships for young adults to get job training, employment placement and on-the-job coaching.
  • Develop a legislative agenda and host advocates at the Capitol during the legislative session.
  • Host kitchen table conversations with legislators and train parents and individuals on advocacy to impact change in our state.

Many employers will match funds donated by employees. Be sure to check with your employer to maximize your giving impact!
