Help A Child Attend Camp Independence

Tesh provides opportunities for children to increase their social skills during the summer day camp, the after-school program, and during Camp Independence. A $1,500 donation sponsors a child for a full year of programming.

Sponsor a Teen Work Experience

The first job can be a life-changing experience for any teen, especially one with a disability. Providing a safe, fun, and supportive experience tailored to each teen is a focus for Tesh. Sponsor a teen work experience for only $1,200 and you can change their life!

Support Independent Living Skils

Self sufficiency and independent living skills are essential for quality of life for a person with disabilities. Community access activities like meal planning and shopping provide opportunities for growth and development. Sponsor a client at $1,000 to attend our independent living classes each year.

Stock Our Activity Center

A $600 donation can help us purchase materials for our activities center for both youth and adults here at Tesh. We always need new markers, colored pencils, construction paper, gym balls and games, blocks and legos. And much, much more!
