As a nonprofit organization, we require support and investment from people in the St. Louis community and beyond. We present volunteer, fundraising and other event opportunities to our friends to get involved with our work throughout the year. We also actively reach out and engage with individuals, businesses and communities through “Disability Talks” led by our Co-Founder Colleen Starkloff and Young Professional Board activities.
