Opening Minds. Changing Lives. Together.

You helped Frank achieve an important milestone.

After nearly ten years of hard work and dedication, this past year Frank was offered an independent position as a mail associate at General Mills through Xerox. Originally starting on a Supported Employment Team through Opportunity Partners, Frank has enjoyed being part of a team and the opportunity to show he can take on more.

Frank knows his job well and thrives in the busy environment. Processing 6,000-plus pieces of incoming and outgoing mail each day and roughly 300 packages, on top of countless other duties, he moves through his day with speed and precision.

His supervisor is grateful to have him on the team. Frank sets a great example for his peers, who look up to him. He is a wonderful resource for those less experienced on the team and trains in new hires.

Frank does not take this opportunity for granted. He travels by city bus two hours each way to get from his home to his job.

Everyone deserves the opportunity to work and feel part of a team. You can make more dreams like this become reality, and you can help us build even more connections in our community for people with disabilities.

Whether it's living independently, learning new skills or working as part of a team, your giving helps us redefine ability.

Together we will open minds and change lives.
