Each "startup" box is valued at $250!
DDD's 1st Placement
One member, a 21-year old man who has cerebral palsy and epilepsy, was able to take advantage of an affordable housing option made available through the DDD HERO Program and the Housing Authority of Maricopa County. (See "DDD's HERO Program: Putting Members on the Path to Independence." -- on the DES Intranet.) Your donations helped to make this member's move to independence a success!
