 Slide1Dear Reader,

I’m writing to invite you to my non-profit, Able Community’s Mad Hatter Tea Party Fundraiser on Sunday May 20th at 2pm.  It will be held at 123 S. Belmont Ave. in Arlington Heights.

Able Community is a 501(c)(3) creating housing to improve people with disabilities’ independence.  We just moved into our first house in November and are the only accessible, intentionally inclusive cooperative housing in the United States seeking to provide personal care services to people with disabilities.

Our mission statement is redefining independence through self-directed personal care, employment, and community by building affordable co-housing for people with and without disabilities to create an alternative to living in nursing homes and depending on family for care.

We are having this fundraiser to raise money to enlarge 2 basement windows so they are up to municipal codes and can be used as fire escapes, so that our caregivers can live there, or so it can be rented out to offset our care costs. All of the proceeds from the tea party fundraiser will go towards this need.

We can’t do this without you. It will cost $16,000 to enlarge 2 basement windows (or $10,000 for one window) as fire escapes.  We have already raised $3,000 towards this goal.  We need your help reaching our goal!

Please contact me at the e-mail below with any questions or to RSVP.

Sincerely,
Esther S. Lee
President of Able Community
