BENEFITING: NURTURING EXCEPTIONAL SOULS TOGETHER
This will be the first of many fundraising campaigns we will have to get our organization launched. We need these initial funds to create a website and retain the services of an accountant to register as a non-profit LLC based in NM rather than NJ, file various tax forms, and for many other objectives to fully launch us. Donations ARE tax-deductible. We are an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization. http://www.facebook.com/NESTnonprofit
NEST’s mission is to sponsor cohousing communities that will include homes for as many as ten adults with Down syndrome as well as separate residences for their sibling caretakers. Our vision is to provide a safe place for developmentally disabled loved ones over age 40 to live within the setting of the traditional cohousing model of a nurturing and collaborative intentional community. In so doing, we will enable siblings to step away from their caregiver role, knowing that their brothers and sisters will be able to age in place as fully integrated community members, independent of family care and connections.
