This October Disability Advocates is celebrating our 40th year of impacting the West Michigan community, and we are having a party to celebrate! Join us on October 20 at the Frederik Meijer Gardens for Invest in Ability 2021 as we reflect back on the work of the organization and the difference it has made in the community.  

We have worked tirelessly over the past 40 years to ensure that people with disabilities can lead self-directed lives, remain in their homes safely and independently, and that our community is welcoming and accessible to all. We believe There’s No Place Like Home! 

For 2021, we are planning what we hope will be the most fun FUNdraiser yet. The evening will feature highlights of the organization’s milestones from our first 40 years, music, dinner, a photo booth, and many other fun surprises. 

Invest in Ability is Disability Advocates of Kent County’s annual fundraising event that raises funds to that help sustain and support our programs and services throughout the year. 

Thank you to our sponsors who support the foundation of our work. We couldn’t do it without you!
