In December 2017 we were asked the question… “What happens when Erin ages out of school in 4 years?” At the time the only answer we had was that she would stay home with us until we could no longer care for her at home. However, being home with us really means a lot more: one of us would need to ‘retire’, little exposure to people her own age, few social activities, little community engagement outside of doctor’s appointments and just us for company.
We know resources are very limited, especially for an individual like Erin who is completely reliant on someone else for her care. With this undertaking you have given us so much hope for her future. Not only will she be able to continue to learn and grow; she will have a purpose. We see how much she loves school and being in that active environment and how important it is to her.
Being able to dream and to have the ability to make Matthias Academy reality, has allowed us to think beyond “school” for Erin and this possibility is a game changer for our entire family. Matthias will continue to open doors for her and others like her. Please consider making a donation to help Erin and other adults like her!
So very grateful!!
