Give to Meaningful Meadows on #GivingTuesday


This #GivingTuesday MRI is raising funds for Meaningful Meadows, our new innovative outdoor activity center for adults with developmental disabilities. Meaningful Meadows will provide our individuals an inclusive space to create new experiences, provide new opportunities to learn, promote their physical well-being, boost creativity, reduce stress and anxiety, and connect to their community, all while being accessible.

We are hoping to break ground this fall and every donation will bring us closer to our goal. Meaningful Meadows will give our individuals new opportunities to explore their passions, grow, be more independent, and achieve a higher sense of self-worth.
