Here at FRIENDS we do amazing work to help our participants through our Day, Supported Employment, Residential, and Social & Travel Programs. In order for FRIENDS to carry out our mission of enhancing communities by creating opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, our participants need access to FRIENDS and their community.
It is through accessible transportation that we are able to connect our Friends to the community, creating an inclusive environment for all. Without FRIENDS transportation participants would not be able to attend FRIENDS Programs and all would not be able to access the extensive opportunities FRIENDS provides within the Broomfield and greater area. This would hinder their ability to accomplish career goals and lifelong dreams, create new experiences, and strengthen their life skills for growth towards independence.
FRIENDS is currently in need of a new bus to accommodate our transportation needs. The total cost of this bus is $90k. However, we only need to raise $45k, thanks to an anonymous match from one of our very generous donors. Every gift made from now through May 7th will be matched dollar for dollar, doubling your impact. We offer you the chance to provide embracing connections for our Friends, by making a gift today.
