Introducing “Empowered” Video Series: A Look at How Donors Like You Are Making a Difference

Categories: Agency News

Last month, ADAPT Community Network introduced its EMPOWERED video series, highlighting the world of opportunities that we provide for individuals living with disabilities.

In collaboration with an award-winning film maker Andrew Lawton, ADAPT brought to life the stories of Jamal, Shaniqua and Natalie.

In Episode #1, meet Jamal, who has traveled to work at the Yankee Stadium by subway each day for the past eight years. Jamal possesses a strong work ethic and a positive spirit that so many of the individuals within the diverse ADAPT community exhibit. In Episode #2, meet Shaniqua, who takes to the slopes in upstate New York and fulfills an item on her bucket list by participating in adaptive skiing for the first time. Episode #3, illustrates how Art Specialist Natalie Reichel helps individuals with disabilities express their creativity through digital art at the beautiful New York Botanical Gardens.

Please enjoy and share these inspiring videos. Help ADAPT Community Network continue to do the work we do by making a gift today to support more individuals like Jamal and Shaniqua and enable staff like Natalie to bring creative solutions to working with people living with disabilities!
