Sweeping Changes at the Therapeutic Intervention Program in Holyoke

DLC has been working very hard to investigate and monitor schools where children with disabilities have been abused or neglected. We recently had a very nice outcome in one of our systemic cases we thought you might be interested in hearing about:

Barriers to wheelchair repairs

Barriers to wheelchair repairs and replacements have been a huge problem for many years. Long delays, wrong parts, and incorrect repairs are some of the biggest obstacles faced by people who use wheelchairs, which can impede their ability to live independently. Take Emma’s story for example:

On November 27 we’re joining a national day of generosity, #GivingTuesday. It’s a day when you can make a big impact on the work DLC does on behalf of our clients.

With your help, we’ll raise funds to help people with disabilities get the services and programs they need to be as independent as possible and to keep people with disabilities safe from abuse and neglect wherever they live and receive services.

How can you be a part of it? Here are a few simple ideas:

  • Consider making a gift on #GivingTuesday  – see donation form below
  • Help us get the word out on social media, using @DLCMA and the hashtag #GivingTuesday
  •  Take photos demonstrating why you love DLC and post them on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram
  •  Do something kind for another person

With your support, we can raise $3000 for those we serve.

Thank you for giving.
