Fulton County Board of Commissioners decided to eliminate funding for people who have disabilities in metro Atlanta. Their decision came in the middle of a contract year, leaving us with a $15,000 shortfall right now. Our organization is small but our impact on the community is tremendous. Annually, we match 12 people who are vulnerable to disability discrimination with 12 ordinary citizens to provide protection and community inclusion. These relationships benefit us all because we are all better off when everyone shows up. We need your help to bridge this financial loss in order to pay our bills for the next 60 days and to continue making and supporting matches.
