THE STORY:

Why Help PDS Win the JobRaising Challenge?

PDS needs your help to win the JobRaising Challenge! We need to get as many donations as possible before the competition ends on March 1, 2013. PDS is such a small program, that every dollar truly makes a difference and is not just a "drop in the ocean." If we win the JobRaising Challenge the prize money awarded could ensure the survival of our organization for many years to come!

PDS is solving the nation's job crisis by ensuring that people with developmental disabilities are valued assets to the workforce.

PDS creates employment opportunities for people with the most severe mental as well as physical challenges, who would not typically be considered employable. All of our clients have moderate to profound intellectual disabilities and most have secondary sensory, psychiatric and/or physical disabilities as well. Despite the severity of their disabilities, our clients have shown that they are able to lead productive lives that add value to our communities, boosting the economy we all share.


While we will only serve about 30 clients this year,  we are solving the nation’s job crisis by leading by example. Limiting the number of clients we work with allows us to focus our attention on each individual, meeting their specific needs and capitalizing on each person’s potential.

PDS is all about creating ordinary lives for extraordinary people. These concepts of diversity and inclusion for people with developmental disabilities are not novel or complicated. But, unfortunately, providing the very basic services and supports to make these concepts a reality is impossible on government funding alone. PDS counts on the generosity of individuals, foundations and corporations to supplement the minimal state funding we receive, so we can provide such innovative and exciting services.

While PDS may be small, we know that the work we do is much is impactful on many levels. Every day we break down stereotypes and pioneer the way for other people with developmental disabilities to be allowed equal rights and opportunities. Because we are a small organization your donation will go a long way, not only to help adults with developmental disabilities work and become more independent in the community, but also to actually ensure that they are included in life. Now that is real value for your money!

PDS is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization organized for charitable purposes and all donations are tax-deductible. Check us out at http://www.pdsmarin.org
