GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - A local non-profit in the Grand Valley has made it their mission for over 50 years to provide services to individuals with special needs.
You've probably heard of STRiVE, but incase you haven't, they hold a luncheon every two months so that you can learn about what they do.
During Wednesday's meeting, the organization introduced themselves with a PowerPoint showcasing all of their services.
These services range from minimal to around the clock assistance for people with all types of physical, intellectual, and mental challenges.
Those with the organization said it's not only about spreading the word about what they do, but it's about giving people a better understanding of the special needs community.
"People may have a different speech pattern or whatever the case, but that has nothing to do with what is inside of them," said Doug Sorter, Vice President with STRiVE.
Those with STRiVE said it's their mission to support people who strive to meet their full potential.
If you'd like to learn more about what they do, they invite you to volunteer with them or to simply attend one of their luncheons.
