How You Can Make An Impact

Thank You for Helping Make Heart Work Your Work.

You are integral to our work in the fight for the full inclusion of people with disabilities, making an impact in their homes, workplaces, and community. Join us and make a real difference in the lives of the people we support. Make heart work your work.

Your impact of time, money, along with goods and services ensure that the individuals we support live independently in a home of their choice, find meaningful employment, develop lasting relationships, and experience full inclusion in their community.

Making a donation is the most effective way to support ALSO. Your funds will go where they are most needed in helping us continue to provide expert services.

Declutter for a Cause!
