Our Outreach Services program helps to fill many of the gaps faced by people with disabilities. Traditional funding streams limit the kinds of equipment and activities that can be purchased. Through the generous support of United Way of Mahaska County, Imagine the Possibilities is able to meet many of those needs, such as camper ships and special trips, Special Olympics, Challenger Little League Team and other special gifts and grants.
Outreach Services Factsheet
Imagine the Possibilities' Outreach Services are special fund allocations granted for the purpose of filling the gaps often left for children and adults with disabilities. Even those who receive supportive services from agencies like Imagine the Possibilities are left with needs that cannot be met through more traditional funding streams. Imagine the Possibilities' Outreach Services provide money to access activities, equipment and services designed to fill these gaps.
Through many years of providing services to children and adults with disabilities, Imagine the Possibilities has become keenly aware of those areas where additional funding is needed. We use this knowledge and experience to put together funding programs that are offered with the highest efficiency possible.
