Your Company’s Commitment
Has a Direct Impact on Families
According to The Disability Funders Network, individuals with special needs are twice as likely as able-bodied individuals to have an average household income of $15,000 or less per year.
Skyrocketing healthcare and insurance rates – coupled with the steep costs of medical and adaptive equipment – often cause a strain on the finances of families impacted by special needs. Recreational budgets are kept to a bare minimum, or in many cases are non-existent.
Corporate donors form the backbone of our organization, allowing us to develop and sustain key programs and events at little to no cost to our visitors. Your company’s commitment to The Hopeful Farm Foundation has a direct influence on the families we serve.
