Welcome to FRA’s exciting web-site. The fact that you are here and reading this greeting is proof that you CARE…CARE about providing PossAbilities for people with disAbilities; CARE about what happens to people with special needs; CARE about FRA and our Mission.
FRA was founded 32 years ago by people who CARED. FRA is based on the premise that CARING people can make a difference in the lives of those who have special requirements and their extended families. Over this period of time, FRA has been a driving instrument in changing the way services are performed, technology is utilized and the whole family unit is included. All of this happened by CARING people who could process new ideas into actions. You will find a lot of information about this on this web-site.
Last year was remarkable for us. FRA….
-Closed out the fiscal year, for the third year in a row with no debt (quite an achievement in this economy)
-Increased our dance and recreation programs substantially, adding 6 more classes
-Tripled the number of young adults serviced by our ‘independent skills’ classes held in two locations
-Grew our TECHConnection computer center by adding more devices, more computers and more solutions for technology to assist the family unit.
Please explore all of the programs we offer so you don’t miss something that would be of great help to you and you family.
None of these accomplishments could have been possible without the strong efforts of our administrative staff, our therapists, our Board of Trustees, our volunteers and YOU. YOUR support and efforts are at the heart of our Mission and is the engine which keeps us moving forward. We have many ways for you to become actively involved with us…from event committees and operating groups to class assistants and Board seats. If you have time to donate, you will find a very friendly, vibrant and satisfying environment.
We thank you for becoming involved with FRA and the work we do, and we wish you good health and happiness
Bill Sheeser, President
FRA Board of Trustees
