ConnectUS provides valuable programming for individuals with severe multiple disabilities in the metro Detroit area. Our program provides stimulating adaptive activities for members as well as valuable skills and experience for volunteers and interns. Grant funds and gifts from generous donors will be used to expand our services and bridge the employment gap for adults with autism and/or other special needs by paying them as contract employees for the services they provided including the setup and breakdown of ConnectUS projects. This program will provide valuable career experience and training while creating a sense of purpose, self-worth and pride for adults with special needs. Projects completed by ConnectUS are requested from and then donated to other local nonprofits creating a community of collaboration! Your support enables even the most severely challenged individuals to participate in productive activities.
