Become an advocate for people with disabilities today!

What can we do to improve the lives of others, especially those with disabilities?

The dictionary describes an “advocate” as one who publicly supports or suggests an idea, development or way of doing something.

Here at Mays Mission, our primary goal is to aid and assist people with disabilities. Yes, putting to work those who may have difficulty finding gainful employment is one facet of our purpose yet there is so much more.

Public education regarding the abilities and capabilities of people with disabilities is of utmost importance. You see, through our various programs and outreaches, we have the opportunity to inform and educate the public throughout the country that given the opportunity, people with disabilities can become productive citizens.

Through our On-The-Job Training Program we have seen scores of people with a variety of disabilities come and go here at Mays Mission while others have chosen to stay with us. It’s heartwarming to know that some have bought their own homes, learned to drive and purchased automobiles, while some have moved on to bigger and better opportunities. Seeing people succeed and become more independent where at one time hope seemed lost is an indescribable feeling. This On-The-Job Training Program is only possible because of the kind hearts of our donors.

This is a special year for us here at Mays Mission. It’s our 50th year anniversary and we’ve set a goal: to aid and assist people with disabilities. Won’t you please join us?  Call us at 1-888-503-7955 or email us at info@maysmission.org to learn more about our programs and see how you can be an advocate for people with disabilities. We have a variety of brochures that were produced by disabled employees right here at Mays Mission that you can distribute in your community to help raise awareness. And if you would like to donate, we accept donations through Paypal, just click the donate button on this page. Thank you so much for your help in our 50th year of serving the disabled!
