"My first experience with Al Sigl was attending CP Rochester's preschool program. My involvement came full circle when I turned 16 and I was looking to get my driver’s license. My high school counselor suggested Rochester Rehabilitation’s DriveOn program. They helped me learn to drive and determine which adaptations my car needed. That experience in particular changed my entire view of what was possible. The sense of independence I felt getting my license helped me focus on a future where disability didn’t matter.
I want kids of all abilities to see adults with disabilities who are making their own choices in life and say, 'I can do that too. I don’t have to fit a mold. I can be independent. I can have a career. I can volunteer and contribute.'
I credit Al Sigl and especially my family for teaching me early on in life that a disability is not an impediment. That lesson has stayed with me. Every year more and more people turn to Al Sigl Member Agencies for help and support as they work to reach their goals. I hope you will join me in making a gift today to recognize their achievements and encourage us all to envision a future full of possibilities."
