THE STORY:

Disclaimer: I am on the staff at The Resource Exchange (TRE) with the mission to build independence for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), and my responsibilities are fundraising, marketing and public relations.  I do NOT get a percentage of funds raised.  I personally financially support TRE because I am extremely passionate about increasing the number of people with IDD that we support b/c they deserve the same shot at a high quality of life as the rest of us.

We must create opportunities for people with IDD to excel, become independent, and enjoy their pursuit of happiness like all Americans. These opportunties may be a little different and cost more than the "typical" education, healthcare, housing, etc. but in the end, the stronger a person's independence, the more they can give back to society. We cannot ignore the human dignity of people with IDD who want opportunities, but society tells them (by our lack of action to create opportunities) they are not worthy. Currently in our region of Colorado, only about 35% are supported. We MUST do better!
