Athelas is proud to participate in . . .

A way for you to have a global reach and yet a local impact. Support us !

We all know this has been a challenging year. So, first and foremost we hope that you and your families are safe and healthy, and remain so.

But we also hope you can share a little to help support others. Now more than ever, your donations will continue to help support and sustain our Mission:  "Providing opportunities for growth and personal accomplishment to individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities complemented by quality services and meaningful community engagement."

During these challenging times your donations can immediately go to obtaining supplies needed for the health and safety of our individuals and the staff that continue to support and work with them. Supplies like - PPE, masks, food, paper products and personal care products. 

Your donations can also purchase materials and supplies for our programs. We will be able to enhance our existing homes and facilities in support of our aging population and to improve the safety and quality of life for the individuals, as well as, explore new opportunities for recreational programs, community engagement, training and supported employment, when we can fully re-integrate into our communities. 

Even more of an immediate need is that of technology for our Virtual Learning Programs! Our individuals need tablets, cameras, etc., so they can participate in our virtual classes, virtual tours of our communities, museums, libraries, etc., and to maintain a virtual connection with families and friends in their communities. 

Whatever amount you can give, it will be welcome and it will definitely be put to good use.

Please consider donating NOW . . . Help us, to help our individuals and their communities. 

"Thank you" for keeping the spirit of giving alive!


Real change starts with YOU

You have the power to donate your time or money to positively impact the lives of the individuals we serve.  Even a small donation can make a big difference in their lives. Please be kind and be generous.

Remember . . .  #GivingTuesday is a global phenomena, but it can have a lasting local impact.      But only with your help. 

Athelas, our staff and our individuals, thanks you for thinking of them and considering a donation. Your kindness and generosity is greatly appreciated.
