A JEFFERSON CITY BASED ORGANIZATION CREATED TO BENEFIT ADULTS WITH DISABILITIES IN OUR COMMUNITY
We are a nonprofit organization, established in June 2016 in the Jefferson City, Missouri area whose mission is to raise awareness about and lend support to adults with developmental disabilities
In the 2017 year, the Day Solutions Foundation's 2nd annual fundraising campaign, Strikes for Solutions, will be bigger than ever! Our goals for this year include establishing a fully equipped onsite employment facility where individuals with developmental disabilities can receive one-on-one training to learn the skills necessary to secure community employment in a variety of employment industries including: retail, warehousing, service and general business. The Foundation will continue its efforts to build relationships with a variety of businesses and organizations to outsource volunteer work positions to help the clients of Day Solutions, Inc. reach their goals for improved independence with life skills and community integration.
The creation of the Day Solutions Foundation came about from the idea to host the 1st Annual Strikes for Solutions FUNdraiser to benefit the clients of Day Solutions, Inc.which is a day habilitation program for adults with disabilities. The fundraiser itself was an effort to raise enough money to be able to eliminate some of the financial burdens that families with disabilities face in order to ensure that all clients could participate in available activities and outings regardless of financial status. The support and contributions we received from our community was overwhelming, bringing in a total of $20,001.61. It was at that point, we realized that our mission and outreach could extend much further than we had originally anticipated and the Day Solutions Foundation was established.
