Our new nonprofit helps people with a range of disabilities have a higher quality of life through our affordable and professionally-managed pooled special needs trust. Donations will allow us to reach more people in L.A.
Thanks to our generous donors, we have hit 25% of our fundraising goal of $3,600. Please help us keep up the momentum into Giving Tuesday!
When Betty, of our older special needs trust beneficiaries was in rehab for several weeks recovering from a bad fall, her cell phone broke. She needed a new cellphone, but had no way to get one.
One of dedicated client services staff members purchased the phone on her behalf, sterilized and programmed it to make it easy to use, and then drove it over to the rehab and handed it to the head nurse.
This is a shining example of our philosophy of “doing what it takes” for our clients.
I want to personally thank you for your past support of JLA Special Needs Trust & Services (JLA Trust). Your donation has enabled our nonprofit to help people with disabilities in so many crucial ways, such as:
· Ensuring that clients who receive means-tested government benefits such as SSI and Medi-Cal are able to keep those benefits if they receive an unplanned inheritance or legal settlement
· Providing person-centered, highly-individualized client services to over 100 children, teens and adults with a wide range of developmental, intellectual, physical and mental disabilities
· Connecting our clients to other services and programs such as the LA City Meals to Angelenos with Disabilities, a new program in response to COVID
This has been a tough year for us financially but things are looking bright for 2021.
Your support will ensure that we can grow to help more persons with disabilities access affordable professional trustee services.
Donations will also fund our time and resources to keep providing free educational workshops for the entire community on such vital topics as Government Benefits 101, Affordable Housing for Persons with Disabilities and information on the new CalABLE tax-advantaged savings program.
I am asking you to please consider an end-of-the-year donation to JLA Trust: https://jlatrust.org/donate/
