Please consider supporting the children and adults that the Spina Bifida Resource Network (SBRN) serves. Your gift will aid children born with spina bifida to learn lifelong skills and help adults connect and share knowledge of living with a disability. It will also ease financial burdens for families with high medical costs.
The SBRN has been hard at work supporting individuals and families living with disabilities. Because of the generosity of people like you, we have been able to serve our community through special, unique programs such as our:
Family Support Program– Our nursing and community advocate staff provide hundreds of hours to children and adults, including instruction on bowel and bladder management programs, how to avoid infections, when to seek care and how to advocate for supports.
Special Medical Needs Fund – We distribute thousands of dollars each year to help cover unreimbursed medical costs for families overwhelmed by expenses.
Empowerment Retreat – We host our annual weekend long retreat for adults with disabilities. The retreat is coordinated and facilitated by individuals with disabilities, and is designed to increase independence, socialization, self-esteem and overall growth. Some retreaters have described this experience as “life-changing!”
You can make these programs happen and assure that the SBRN is here for families now and in the future. Join our campaign by giving today – no amount is too large or too small! Think of the lives we can change together!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
