The Issue: Recreation for People with Disabilities
Many adults with disabilities need to live in institutions full-time to ensure they receive adequate daily care. As a result, those lacking extra resources may never have gone on vacation or left the region where they live.
The Campaign: Funding Vacation for People with Disabilities
If this Grassroots campaign raises $400, then Tennessee Family Solutions Inc. (TFS) can fund a weekend vacation for four adults with disabilities. Each additional $100 raised will allow another person with disabilities to go on the trip. TFS has rented a cabin for 55–60 people, and the trip will pair each guest with a staff member. The three-day vacation will include activities such as a Cades Coves automobile tour for people who are nonambulatory, a trip to Ripley’s Aquarium, a dinner show, and a picnic.
