GIVING TUESDAY

Latest TMI News

Help Us Make Wishes Come True!

We exceeded our 2021 Giving Tuesday goal! We raised $1,020 for our Julie Casey Honorary Fund which goes directly toward assisting our clients with intellectual and developmental disabilities such as autism, Down syndrome and cerebral palsy. Julie Casey was a young woman with Down syndrome who TMI was honored to support for almost eight years. She lived in her own apartment and worked at her local public library. Sadly, Julie died unexpectedly of complications from pneumonia only a few weeks before her 27th birthday in 1996. In honor of Julie, TMI renamed its Community Scholarship Fund the Julie Casey Honorary Fund. In the past, the fund has been able to respond positively to hundreds of worthy applications. We know that Julie would be proud of her lasting legacy which is helping to transform lives.

 

The fund has helped our clients move from group homes to their own apartments, buy essential items for the transition to independence, uniforms for employment, assist with school costs, food, rental assistance, and much more. Last fiscal year alone, we distributed more than $14,000 from the fund to assist our clients.

 

While Giving Tuesday for 2021 may be over, you can still join us in transforming lives!
