Raise of Hope – Monthly Giving

You can be a change maker in Greater Cincinnati

Raise of Hope is a passionate and bold group of monthly supporters who support our client stories of perseverance. By joining this group with a monthly gift, you’ll make dreams come true through opportunity and inclusion.

Each ongoing monthly gift provides steady support for the work we do at Easterseals Redwood. It is reassurance that we can continue to change lives daily. Last year, with the help of so many Raise of Hope supporters and other generous donors, we connected nearly 500 people to employment. Collectively, these newly employed individuals will earn $9.4 million in their first year. That’s turning hope into a bright, promising future!

A Story of Hope – Meet Danny

“I always noticed I was different to others. My senior year of high school, I was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, an Autism spectrum disorder. All these symptoms matched me to a “T.” I understood math and logic, but for socializing, I needed to open up textbooks and study it.”

Thanks to the neurodiversity endeavors of Procter & Gamble, Danny was understood for his capabilities and was hired as a valued team member. Procter & Gamble invited Easterseals to be part of its Austism@Work initiative because its expertise in job coaching.

Danny’s Easterseals Job Coach has helped him navigate the nuances of interaction and roles of being an employee.

“For the first time, I felt like any sort of employer actually listened to me and took an interest in who I was not just what I was could do. I’m able to actually push myself, apply myself and grow as a person that I really knew I could be. I just needed to be given the opportunity.”
