Co-founders Vivian and John Maley sat down recently to answer a few questions about the Joseph Maley Foundation…where it has been, what is happening in 2018 and what they see in JMF’s future.
June 2018 marks the first Joseph Maley Family Support Sibs Summer Camp. Participants will share their experiences as siblings of individuals with disabilities in a safe and respectful environment. Campers will also have the opportunity to engage in other Joseph Maley Foundation programs such as Service Day, HOPE, and disABILITY Awareness.
The Joseph Maley Foundation is currently hosting two spring-semester interns from the University of Indianapolis. Kirby Jones and Niki Schath are both members of the Class of 2018 who participate in cheerleading, among many other extracurricular pursuits. Both Kirby and Niki decided to continue their internship experience through the summer before they move on to graduate school; we are happy to keep them as part of our JMF family a bit longer! We invite you to get to know them more in this week’s blog.
More than 19% of Indiana’s population is composed of adults and children with a disability. Every March, the Hoosier state celebrates Disability Awareness Month. On March ninth, the Joseph Maley Foundation partnered with Holy Spirit Catholic School to provide a unique opportunity to conclude their weeklong disABILITY Awareness program.
Board member Eric Schommer shares his “Why JMF?” with his years of involvement with the Foundation as a partner school principal, JMFamily Advocacy panelist, and so much more.
