This year, that question has challenged us like no other. Is it the ability to take part in activities you enjoy, to choose how and where you spend each day? Is it the ability to be able to connect with others, to know that you are part of a community?
This global pandemic has affected each of us. There has been unimaginable loss, and confusion. There have also been remarkable moments of hope, of people pulling together to help in ways large and small. We have experienced innovation and collaboration like we have never seen before as our agencies have found creative ways to continue to provide critical services.
As you read this, our agencies and the people they serve are facing incredible challenges. They need your support now more than ever. The stories below include many ways our agencies have responded to these rapid changes. They also include stories of connection and achievement even in the most difficult of times.
This Independence Day may feel very different, but our community remains committed to helping children and adults with special needs lead more independent lives. Please consider making a gift today in support of our work together.

YOUR gift today will provide critical help for our six agencies and the more than 55,000 children and adults they serve.
Yes, I will help Al Sigl Celebrate Independence Day every day!
