TILES FOR TECHNOLOGY FUNDRAISER

July 2014

Dear Friends,

It's been a long time since I have seen most of you. I hope everyone is well.

I have recently had the privilege of working with a unique Houston non-profit organization created to inspire, teach and support young adults with intellectual disabilities and their families in the area of transition, employment, daily living, and community involvement: The Summerhouse.
 

Life is full of transitions.

One of the most remarkable transitions in our own life occurs when we leave high school and go out in the world as young adults. The parents of many young adults with disabilities compare this transition to "driving over a cliff!"

This is where The Summerhouse comes in. Opening their doors in 2012, The Summerhouse focuses on providing young adults with a variety of options to obtain the skills necessary for a successful transition into independent adult life. The program’s beginnings as a social skills-based program has naturally evolved into a full time daily educational program encompassing not only basic life skills, but functional academics, social and emotional skills, and vocational training focused on entry into community-based employment.
 

Tiles for Technology

Due to their success, the folks at The Summerhouse are preparing to move into a new multi-purpose building to better serve their goals and their growth. One goal is the purchase of five laptops for their tiled computer bar. To raise money for these laptops, The Summerhouse is selling the tiles that will be used to create the computer bar.

These 6" x 6" tiles can be personalized and used to honor your family name, celebrate a precious memory, memorialize a loved one, or announce your proud support. The tiles can be purchased for $100 per tile. You can purchase more than one if you would like.

There will be a dedication of the tile counter at The Summerhouse annual fundraiser in November, 2014.
 

If It Takes a Village, Let's Be That Village

In the spirit of "it takes a village", I am sharing this story with you in the hopes you will support this cause: buy a tile, donate, volunteer. And please consider sharing this opportunity for The Summerhouse with your friends, families and colleagues.

I would also like to ask you to share this fundraiser in your sales meetings. It truly is a wonderful place for young adults with intellectual disabilities to become successful in our community.

Many thanks in advance,
Holly Ellis
