The Julia Anne Kirsch Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is dedicated to improving the lives of those with significant developmental disabilities and their families. The Foundation honors the memory of a very special girl, Julia Anne Kirsch, who had multiple disabilities and faced many medical challenges. It was through Julia that her parents, Teri and Cliff, became aware of the real challenges and barriers that the disabled and their families face every day of their lives. It was also through Julia that they learned of the special potential each individual holds and that they and their families can lead a full and happy life.
We are so happy to have granted a Mobo to this sweet girl who had outgrown her adaptive tricycle. Now she can ride around her neighborhood once again. . . .
Brody needed a hand with communicating his wants and needs. Our grant to him of the Proloquo2go app has let Brody "speak" loud and clear. . . .
Kai, age 14, needed some special fabric to cover his clothing and chair. The Foundation was very pleased to make a grant for the purchase of this fabric. This special material will help to keep Kai both comfortable and safe. . . .
Suzie needed help with her everyday personal care activities. We were so happy to give a grant to Suzie to purchase the Rifton HTS system. Now daily care and hygiene activities are so much easier for Suzie and her family. . . .
