Your Gift Supports People With Disabilities Through The Blanco Fund for Advocacy and Family Support

With your gift you ensure people with disabilities have the support they need to find success at their job, live fully included in their community, and to navigate health and government services systems.

The Blanco Fund supports advocacy-related services for people with disabilities and their families who need help navigating the adult service system bureaucracy and special education challenges, as well as meeting people's needs during emergencies or crises. Since advocacy is not supported by any public funds, the generosity of people like you supports Achieva's advocacy mission.
