February is a month of love and giving! Just Food’s community partner for February is Laura Baker Services Association, an organization that does just that – loves and gives. Your round up at the register this month will help Laura Baker with their “Fund-A-Cause” programs.
Pathways to the Future
- Serve as a voice for people with disabilities and engaging in the community to advocate for:
- Affordable housing for people with developmental disabilities
- Adequate respite resources for families
- Public Polices that benefit people with disabilities
- Laura Baker uses art and music as creative tools so clients can focus on developing, physical, cognitive, emotional and social skills
- Our creative arts programing serves as a catalyst that enrich the individual and community life of clients and staff by providing opportunities to learn from each other through shared creative experiences.
Family Support Services
- We help families navigate the world of raising a special needs child and ensure the successful future of their special needs adult.
- We help people make connections in a way that is comfortable, respectful, practical and sustainable, bringing volunteers and families together.
- We do this primarily through adult and youth Respite Care events.
