Connection is why we are here; it is what gives purpose and meaning to our lives.
Established in 1977 as a non-profit organization, The Edinburg Center serves people of all ages with developmental disabilities, serious and persistent mental illness, acquired brain injury and/or autism in the community. The people we serve benefit from full participation in their communities and from the relationships they have developed with others over the years.
With the advent of the coronavirus and the corresponding restrictions placed on all of us, we have have had to reimagine and implement services during the Commonwealth's Stay at Home Order. While the individuals in our programs currently enjoy meaningful day activities, we are seeking ways in which to minimize social isolation and maintain relationships with people and places. People are missing their family and friends - the relationships we all have that give our lives meaning.
Please help the individuals we serve connect via tablet - to friends, family, classes and to community resources. Proceeds from this campaign will be used for the purchase of tablets reserved for use solely by our clients. With $12,000 in support, we can provide 50 tablets to our residents.
If you are an individual or corporation in a position to donate tablets, please contact Juliana Knox at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-909-1952.
