We have partnered for the last few years with Someone Special Needs You – I local non profit for individuals with Autism http://www.ssny.org. We have a 150 gal tank in the office and purchase select premium grade Koi as babies. The Koi live in a parasite free tank with high filtration utilizing ultraviolet lights. So they grow strong and healthy. Once the fish reach 8-12 inches they are sold and the money is donated to Someone Special Needs You.
We sold out this year and here is our newest patch of keepers! If you know of any one looking for Koi please let them know about us they can be seen any business day 9-5. and prices are discounted vs retail.
We have a young adult son that is severally disabled, he has Autism and has challenges that would cripple a strong man. Yet I have watched him work through those challenges and succeed. I look at Angelo and although he has limited speech and challenges that prevent him from independence with supports he achieves the unexpected.
He is currently working for a few hours in my office and a few other insurance agencies in the area scanning documents and he is completing data entry at Residency Select in Eatontown.
The Video below was part of a 40 year anniversary for the founder of Angelo’s school – it shows the success our individuals can achieve.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4USVn2lYWvA?list=UU0d4XEDmWcDsKzfFhUVsvnA&wmode=transparent]
The reason for this post is that as business owners, be open to individuals with challenges. Even with small accommodations you will be very pleases with the out come. Individuals like my son just need the opportunities and they not only succeed they excel, they enjoy work and look forward to it. To most its the highlight of the day. Self worth is necessary for all of us especially to those with such little opportunities.
Keep an open mind and if the opportunity arises to connect with a challenged individual – try it you will be very glad you did not only for that individual but for you.
