This week I would like to bring attention to the members of our Relief Fund Committee. Each quarter, members of this volunteer committee, meet to review the Relief Fund Applications. Having a committee, that is not directly involved in the special needs industry, but rather are business owners, public servants, and financial institution executives allows for Kinera Foundation to create an opportunity for community awareness in a unique way. Our committee members diligently review each application in great detail, they ask thoughtful questions about terminology and acronyms they are not familiar with, and ensure that each application is assessed with compassion and fairness.
Awareness and acceptance are areas of focus for many organizations that serve the disabled population. Kinera Foundation believes that providing an opportunity for the greater community to interact with the families we serve, to glimpse a day in the life of the families we serve, and to truly understand the complexity of raising a child with special needs are important objectives for our volunteers. We are grateful and excited to announce that every member of the Relief Fund Committee has reported feeling more empathetic and understanding of the special needs community, and have agreed to serve for another year.
To the members of the Kinera Foundation Relief Fund Committee - THANK YOU!
