“It feels great to be able to work on a project that is benefiting other people with disabilities,” said Sandra Ralston, Civitan Media designer. “We just want people [with cognitive delays] to know that it is possible to live on their own and we are looking forward to designing for them.”
The Cottage Foundation is pleased to be working alongside a Foundation dedicated to assisting the needs of people with impairments. Selecting disabled designers to brand an initiative that impacts disabled individuals sends a unifying message that we will support each other in the effort of getting the community to support us. It is imperative that persons with disabilities have communal support so that they realize they are just as capable as anyone.
We are proud to be working with Mark and his team at The Cottage Foundation and hope that everyone who cares about quality living options for people with disabilities will give to the Foundation.
Firm Employing People with Disabilities to Work with Cottage Foundation
By Mark Roth, The Cottage Foundation, Inc.
When I looked for a partner to help drive social content for our cause, I turned to The Civitan Foundation, an Arizona non-profit dedicated to providing employment to individuals with disabilities . Civitan Media Productions employs five adults with disabilities who together produce unique social media content, web content and branding that will meet our community outreach needs.
We are pleased to provide employment opportunities through Civitan. The collaboration of our two compatible organizations, both focused on the well-being of individuals with special needs, will yield positive results for everyone involved.
