For 2022, all contributions for PRI will be used to support PRI’s 2022 fundraising campaign, My Voice! My Choice! promotes empowering individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to thrive in an inclusive community where their voices matter, and choices are abundant. This vision becomes a reality when individuals with IDD are seen, heard, and empowered to advocate for what they choose for their lives. At PRI, our services support individuals in overcoming barriers, exploring their interests, discovering and raising their voices, and making choices about how they want to participate in the community.

Your support of Made in the Shade directly impacts individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities by:

  • Removing barriers to community-based experiences, including reliable and safe transportation, so clients can access social, civic and health inclusion.
  • Getting clients back to work in the community so they experience the satisfaction of earning a paycheck and enjoying being part of a team.
  • Recruiting, retaining, and training employees, essential to the support of individuals with disabilities.
  • Rebuild arts and creative expression opportunities.
