ConnectUS is a volunteer run nonprofit providing valuable programming for individuals with severe multiple disabilities (most use wheelchairs) in the metro Detroit area at no charge to participants or their families. This program provides stimulating adaptive activities for participants as well as valuable skills and experience for volunteers and interns.
ConnectUS relies entirely on fundraising and gifts from generous donors to build and purchase adaptive equipment that helps further our mission of enabling even the most severely challenged individuals to participate in productive activities. Fundraising support will also be used to purchase additional equipment allowing for re-configured floor layouts to create safe, spaced-out program environments for the individuals with fragile immune systems that ConnectUS supports. Projects completed by participants are donated to other local nonprofits creating a community of collaboration!
Thank you for considering ConnectUS for a Community Financial Summer of Sharing donation!
