This year, the CCA has selected the Communities of Don Guanella and Divine Providence (DGDP) as its official beneficiary for #GivingTuesday. DGDP are part of the Intellectual Disabilities Division of Catholic Social Services within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The organizations are dedicated to transforming the lives of individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities. They foster a vibrant community filled with love, care, and acceptance based upon the Catholic faith. In partnerships with families, employees, and volunteers, their programs provide a continuum of care offering a wide range of programming options including Community and Campus-Based Living Arrangements, Life Sharing Through Family Living, In-Home Supports, Respite Care, and Day Programs.
This #GivingTuesday, your donations will provide much needed assistive technology to these programs. Assistive technology can have a significant positive effect in helping individuals with disabilities progress towards the goals outlined in their Individual Program Plans. Some examples include computer programs and tablet applications that provide text-to-speech speech-to-text, word prediction capabilities, and graphic organizers.
