 A Virtual Benefit

 

We invite you to participate in a virtual benefit for Enable.  This online benefit is in lieu of Enable’s annual fund raising dinner.  The benefit will be held from April 4 through June 23, 2014.  (If you prefer to donate by sending a check or credit card authorization by mail, here is a form to download, print and mail in.)

Enable is involved in intensive new program development—opening new group homes, adding supervised apartments, expanding day programs and enlarging its in home supports division. We have decided this year to raise funds through a virtual benefit to minimize the time and resources it takes to raise donations. And, a virtual benefit is 100% tax deductible since no funds are used to pay for a venue, food, or entertainment. At this time, we are seeking sponsors for the benefit but ANYONE can participate! A donor may be a sponsor, make a donation, or buy a ticket.

Earlier in the campaign, we featured Louis, a resident in one of Enable's new group homes.  This week we are sharing Peter's story, a new participant at the Roszel Day Program.

This winter Peter wanted to move out of Woodbine, a state institution in South Jersey where he had lived for a long time. But, he couldn’t leave without having a day program that would help him attain better social skills. Peter has significant behavioral needs and his impulsive behavior makes him seem impatient and difficult for others to engage him. He sometimes grabs people which can be frightening.

Participants of the Roszel Day Program

The Roszel Day Program stepped up to this challenge and Peter now attends Monday-Friday. With the support of Enable’s behaviorists, Peter has learned how to interact with other participants and staff more appropriately. He will now sit for several minutes, rarely grabs people, will listen to music and go for walks. He has learned how to use photos to communicate his preferences and needs. All staff received training from the behaviorists in order to consistently reinforce Peter’s more appropriate behavior. Peter lives in a group home operated by another provider. He now has more friends than ever.

Throughout the winter, Roszel increased the number of participants in the program and increased staff skills. Now there are six persons at the program who have extra special needs. Your support for our virtual benefit campaign will help us expand our Easton Day Supports program for persons who have behavioral challenges and will help us open a new day program in Flemington for medically needy participants.

If you want to help more men (and women) like Louis  and Peter to live in our communities, participate now. Every dollar counts towards helping us achieve our goal of raising $100,000.
