DALLAS, Aug. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Music Movement is a non-profit organization who develops and funds music-centric programs, scholarships and events to improve the lives of young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and those with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). They have announced a partnership this week with My Possibilities and will provide a $10,000 grant to the charity.
Music Movement allocates 15% of their annual giving budget to programs with partners that promote independent living. These grants will fund camps and retreats for families with young adults transitioning into adulthood that are living with ASD and IDD. My Possibilities, an ideal partner for Music Movement, is a for-cause organization in North Texas that provides continuing education and vocational training for adults with IDD.
"In our continued efforts to grow our Independent Living Programs, Music Movement is thrilled to announce our partnership with My Possibilities. We are kicking off our first program with a $10,000 grant to sponsor many Hugely Important People "HIPsters" to attend Camp Summit this September and beyond," says Stacie D'Agostino, Founder and president of Music Movement.
HIPsters will enjoy swimming, games and outdoor recreation at Camp Summit. It is a one-of-a-kind camp for individuals with disabilities where the emphasis is on the campers' abilities rather than their disabilities.
