Impact Story: ENDependence Center of Northern Virginia (ECNV)
"This will be our second time participating in Spring2ACTion and we are excited to be back. The funds that were raised in our previous experience with Spring2ACTion helped us to coach individuals within our multicultural families. Here is a testimonial from an individual:

'I have the opportunity to say a few words to you, Miss Fajardo. That day you answered my phone call, I was hopelessly walking with my physical pain and my heart was very heavy because I couldn’t find an answer to my questions. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for answering my call and making an appointment with me. Thank you for letting me know more about the ECNV program that you are a part of, I knew that there are professional people, leaders who work with heart who guide visitors to have confidence and hope with professionalism. Miss Fajardo, I sincerely appreciate the way you are guiding me and the time you took to make sure I feel comfortable and being bilingual gave me more comfort to express myself. I will continue advancing in my vocational rehabilitation by putting your advice into practice. Thank you for accepting to be my coach, it is a great impact on my life. I will remember your words when we say goodbye, Úrsula never turn off the light of your heart. Have faith we will work together to keep it lit and move forward! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2023, to you Miss Fajardo and the ECNV Staff.'

This year, we hope to continue our efforts in providing support and advocacy to several individuals within the disability community."
