My name is Jessica. I am 32 years old and I am special, because I have 21 chromosomes. I like to do my part to contribute to my community andI hope you do too.
I have been part of the Abilities First family for over eleven years. I was excited to be named the 2017 Abilities First Participant of the Year. From working to volunteering, I have had so many opportunities that have helped me to achieve my growth in independence and the ability to move into my own apartment this past spring. I am so proud of myself, but know I couldn'thave done it without the help of everyone at Abilities First.
I want to help make a big difference in the lives of my friends. I would like to see them have the same resources that I have had, but they need your support, time, employment opportunities, and money to help make these things happen.
Join us by taking the PLEDGE, keeping us in your thoughts and hearts, and giving us the helping hand that we need. That would be a big help. Thank you from my heart. Truly!
Wishing you and your family a happy holiday!
