The Gift of a Full Life

Have you ever met that one person in your life who you have an instant bond with? For me, that person is Dale.

My name is Ashley Baggenstoss. I’m a Program Manager at Hammer Residences, supporting four individuals living with mobility and developmental disabilities. I have been a caregiver for two-and-a-half years. During that time, Dale and I have formed a special bond.

Dale relies on nonverbal communication. He requires total care throughout his day. We depend on a lift and other home modifications to move Dale around. He requires a van with a wheelchair lift to go places. The van we use is 16 years old and the lift is beginning to rust. Like any older vehicle, it needs to be replaced.

Government funds will pay $18,500 for the needed modifications if you will help us purchase the van itself, which will cost $28,000. Will you invest in Dale and so many others so that they can continue to thrive in their communities? Please donate today. You will be joining hundreds of donors helping individuals like Dale, who require a lift van, to access their communities every day.

Thank you for providing the gift of a full and meaningful life to Dale. We are grateful for your support.


Thank you for supporting people with disabilities!
