When you mention the name Chanell at the Hattie Larlham Center for Children with Disabilities, you always get a smile. What you hear most often about Chanell, though, is that she’s a strong young woman who continues to beat the odds, a fighter and, as her mom Linda Sue describes her, a super girl. Like many of our residents, Chanell is thriving. And it would not be possible without you.

Read more about Chanell in this special feature of our Focus newsletter.

Tues., Oct. 31, 2017 – Giving Tuesday is FOUR weeks away!

Your gift to Hattie Larlham on November 28 creates opportunities for Marina and her fellow residents to explore their communities.

Hattie Larlham residents are active members of their community. Whether someone lives at the Hattie Larlham Center for Children with Disabilities or in a community-based home, we support them as they explore their roles as our neighbors and friends.

Marina is social butterfly. At home she can be found helping out in the kitchen or talking with her roommates. However, Marina really enjoys doing things outside her home. In the summer she attends camp where she has made lots of friends. The relationships she’s building outside of her home creates opportunities for Marina to meet more people, explore new activities and experience her community.

This year, donations to Hattie Larlham on Giving Tuesday will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $15,000. Please remember the babies, children and adults in our care on this national day of giving and Click. Share. Give.

Giving Tuesday is November 28. When you give to Hattie Larlham, you support success stories like Michael’s.

When he was only days old, Michael’s parents were told he wouldn’t live to see his first birthday. Michael was diagnosed with failure to thrive.

“The doctors told me Michael would never be able to hold my hand,” said Michael’s mom Sarah.

After spending the first year of his life in and out of the hospital, Michael came to live at the Hattie Larlham Center for Children with Disabilities. Thanks to Hattie Larlham and your support, Michael celebrated his ninth birthday this year.

Michael doesn’t only receive intense medical care from Hattie Larlham. Just like other boys his age, Michael enjoys pool time, Boy Scouts and field trips to the zoo.

It takes a team of medical professionals, caregivers and Hattie Larlham donors and supporters to create opportunities for Michael.

Because of you, our supporter, residents like Michael thrive.

Please remember Hattie Larlham on Giving Tuesday. Your online donation helps Michael and other children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
