Reasons To Support TASC

  1. There is a shortage of service providers. 1 in 5 people have a disability in the United States, approximately 53 million people. These people and their families depend on service providers, but agencies often close due to funding shortages. The North Los Angeles County Regional Center has people who need placement and wants TASC to build capacity to serve more.
  1. 30 YEARS OF SUCCESS. While other agencies are forced to shut their doors, TASC continues to serve the community and has done so for over 30 years. Thanks to dedicated leadership and staff, TASC continues to expand its programs to meet society’s demands. TASC currently provides 6 innovative and successful programs.
  2. TASC IS A PIONEER IN COMMUNITY INTEGRATION. The best way to learn how to be in the community is to learn, work and socialize with people without disabilities. In 2019, the state will require that all Day Programs be 100% community-based in order to receive funding. TASC has been successfully providing a community-based Day Program since 2014 and already serves as an adviser to fellow organizations who plan to transition.
  1. EVERYONE KNOWS SOMEONE AND THAT SOMEONE COULD BE YOU. 29% of all families in the United States, have at least one member with a disability, and 1 in 4 of today’s 20 year-olds will become disabled before they retire. Whether it’s you, your child, your friend, or your friend’s friend, it’s a personal fight to protect and support people with disabilities.
  2. WE ARE ALL HUMAN WITH THE SAME NEEDS. While often referred to as “special needs,” people with disabilities have the same needs as you and everyone else: a home, a job, an education, healthcare, social outlets, choices and hope. It is our social responsibility to serve and share with our fellow human beings.
  3. NOT SERVING THESE INDIVIDUALS DOES EFFECT YOU. 8% of homeless adults experience disability. What happens when a person has no program to go to, no social interactions, no opportunities to learn, to integrate, to contribute? Families struggle to care for these individuals and there is a high chance that they could end up homeless, which impacts our economy, our environment, and our collective health and safety.

The Thank You Campaign

TASC’s annual fundraiser is also known as The Thank You Campaign. Initiated by a group of parents who want to give back to TASC as a way of saying thanks for the care and services their loved ones receive each day and to ensure TASC services continue, the campaign aims at 100% family participation. Whether $10 or $1,000, your contribution will go directly towards our education and independent living services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

And remember, donating monthly is a great way to spread your support throughout the year, enabling you to more easily give according to your budget and allowing TASC to budget more effectively. Your monthly donations can add up to a big impact!
