Seasons greetings to you from all of us at ProAct!  

We consider it a privilege to be selected to provide services for people with disabilities and we strive to deliver the quality services they deserve. This year we have many things to be thankful for! We have had the opportunity to add programs and expand our services to new areas, allowing us to impact and serve more individuals in the areas of employment, skills training, and enrichment.

Next year, we plan to build an Autism Center as the number of individuals we serve who live with autism or related communication disorders continues to rise. The new center is needed to provide participants with a safe and calming environment to go to when the stressors of the day become too much. Additionally, we continue to provide transportation services to many of our participants who are unable to drive due to their disabilities. In order to accommodate this need, we have submitted a grant to the Minnesota Department of Transportation for the replacement of three wheelchair-lift buses. However, there is a 20 percent matching requirement to obtain the new buses.

During this giving season, we hope you will consider a year-end gift to ProAct to help support the new Autism Center and/or contribute dollars towards the matching funds for the three new buses. The latter is indicated as Vehicle Fund in the options. ProAct is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit corporation making your donation tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.  We appreciate our family of supporters and your donation truly makes an impact!

On behalf of the entire ProAct family, we wish you a joyful holiday season and a blessed 2020.
