Raised for Nonprofits

The Unique Friends Foundation

Our mission is to be liaisons between local businesses and school districts to encourage occupational prep internship programs for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We also want to train individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the skills necessary to optimize their employ-ability. We do this through events. With the event production training our "Unique Friends" receive, they are not only increasing their chances for employment, they are elevating their confidence to compete in society. Finally, to educate the community and local business owners by dispelling stereotypes and illustrating how they can offer employment opportunities.
Our current needs include but are not limited to the following: Administration & Training space, presentation equipment, 3 tablets, marketing and promotional materials, and workshop materials.
