Our team at SHARE Detroit is happy to have an organization with the mission and reputation of Autism Alliance of Michigan (AAOMI) as a part of our platform. We are grateful for the opportunity to “share” more about their important work with our community.
To start, it may be helpful for some to learn more about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in order to comprehend the impact AAoM has on the individuals they serve.
As we celebrate the patriotic experience of the Summer Olympic Games, our team at SHARE Detroit found it fitting to highlight the wonderful work of the Special Olympics Michigan. We are proud to have this nonprofit on our platform and are inspired by their reputation and commitment to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition to children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
For many, summer is a time when kids participate on teams and in sports camps that offer a chance for recreation and socializing. Just like neurotypical children, children with special needs also benefit from physical activities that builds strength and confidence. However, designed for individuals with special needs are often overlooked by sports and recreation departments and consequently, hard for many to access.
SHARE Detroit is happy to provide our community with the chance to learn more about Yad Ezra, an organization with a compelling mission. We are honored to have Yad Ezra on our platform. In Hebrew the words “Yad Ezra” means “helping hand” and since opening its doors in 1990, they have stayed true to their name and become a valued resource in the Jewish Community.
May was dedicated to Mental Health Awareness, we are proud to promote another wonderful organization that addresses this important topic. Kevin’s Song is a newer member of our SHARE Detroit family and the impact of their work in the community is one that many are familiar with and have benefitted from.
Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed in the month of May since 1949. This initiative has helped educate the public on the variety of mental illnesses that affect nearly 20% of Americans. Over the years, the intention of this month has grown to educate and break down the stigma associated with these types of illnesses and promote activities and habits that support our mental health.
