As we all move through the unknown, one thing is certain—
VELA remains deeply committed to ensure that every family of a child with a disability has the knowledge, empowerment, resilience and community to thrive. As families face ﬁnancial loss, isolation, distance learning inequities and exhaustion, VELA has been listening and adapting its services and will continue to do so through new online courses & workshops, virtual support groups, case management, drive-thru family fun days and so much more.
That said, we're very excited to announce that VELA's 9th Annual Be the Light Fundraiser has gone virtual! Join us for an unforgettable 5-day virtual campaign that will include interactive sessions, storytelling and raising funds to ensure families of children with disabilities in our community thrive, especially now when it's most needed. A detailed schedule of the week's activities will soon be shared here- stay tuned. In the meantime, mark your calendars for September 21st-25th!
