The Arc Alliance is proud of Paul’s passion and commitment for advocating for individuals and families. To honor and perpetuate his passion The Arc Alliance has established the “Paul Stengle Advocacy Fund”.
This fund is focused on providing the valued and needed resources required to support individuals with special needs and their families in securing the rights they deserve. We welcome you to support the Paul Stengle Advocacy Fund – honoring Paul Stengle and supporting advocacy for those in need.
Paul’s commitment to early intervention and individuals with disabilities resulted because of his exposure to children at Western Center. He also clearly knew as a child that he was different and in college discovered that he had Attention Deficit Disorder, dyslexia, and a short-term memory problem. He understood what it meant to struggle in the educational system and not have the supports to overcome his disabilities. Because of his concern for individuals being institutionalized and his own personal experience he became an advocate to see that individuals receive appropriate supports in inclusive settings.
Today personal and family advocacy is in great demand. If you have ever received advocacy support you know how valuable this resource can be for a family. Unfortunately, with the current state and local budgets in decline, the financial resources required to provide such a valued support is challenging to uncover.
You can play a strategic role in providing this needed resource by simply make a tax deducible donation to the Paul Stengle Advocacy Fund. Consider a special gift of Support today!
