Hopefully you didn't miss the guest speaker at our last meeting!  Leslie Hernandez Brown is the Assistant Executive Director at Inclusion Connections/PawsAbilities.  Located in Olathe, PawsAbilities provides jobs for young people with disabilities in Kansas City!  The folks at PawsAbilities handcraft dog treats, dog bandanas, pull toys, and more!  They also work in the retail and mobile stores selling the goods they create, which also helps them learn customer service skills for future job opportunities!
Their mission statement is "...to strengthen the lives of individuals with disabilities by creating inclusive opportunities for community involvement, access to meaningful employment, and better options for supported living."
There are MANY ways you can help support this great organization!  Shop their retail store to purchase items for your pets, watch for their mobile store at local events, sponsor a pop-up for your own event, or volunteer/donate!  You can learn more about them by watching this VIDEO or by visiting their website at PawsAbilities
