Portlanders have become accustomed to Joe's favorite organizations being promoted again and again on the Time & Temperature Building, but today is a new one: the Robbie Foundation is a wonderful local non-profit whose mission is to improve the quality of lives for children with special needs. It does this by funding adaptive equipment, technology and therapy treatment not covered by insurance; providing art and technology programs to allow access to educational opportunities; offering family support and resources through respite programs; and by cultivating awareness of the special needs community. The Robbie Foundation's vision is a society that values people with disabilities, upholds their rights, and supports their equitable participation in everyday life.
Joe applauds the important work done by this local organization and urges Portlanders to consider lending them a hand. Learn more about the Robbie Foundation here.
