You Can Make a Difference
On Giving Tuesday, December 3, 2019 Toward Maximum Independence (TMI) is raising money for our Julie Casey Scholarship Fund which goes directly toward assisting our clients with intellectual and developmental disabilities such as autism, Down syndrome and cerebral palsy. In Community Living Services, grants have helped individuals move from group homes to their own apartments, buy essential items for the transition to independence or even purchase a baby crib. In Employment Solutions, the fund has helped our clients purchase clothes for job hunting, bus passes, alarm clocks or other items necessary for employment. In Family Support Services, the fund has been used to send children to summer camp, assist with medication cost, purchase clothing at the beginning of placement and much more. Any and all donations will be put to good use and are greatly appreciated!

An estimated 1 in 6 people are born with a developmental disability. Just like you they are born with hopes, dreams and the drive to contribute to society. Since 1981, TMI has transformed thousands of lives by providing assistance to children and adults living with developmental disabilities, giving them the ability to realize their hopes and dreams.
