Lily Mae has Down syndrome. Your donation today can help her and her family deal with the changes she will face as she progresses through high school and into adult life.
A simple change in the playground games was all it took to upset Lily Mae’s world and isolate her from her friends. Can you imagine what the stress of finding a job could mean to her?
By supporting IHC you are providing a support network for Lily Mae and her family to prepare her for and guide her through the major changes in her life.
Every step of the way
With your support IHC will continue to be there to assist and advise Lily Mae and her family, and to make a difference in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities:
- When parents find out their child has an intellectual disability IHC can help by providing support to get information and resources that will help families to plan.
- IHC’s IDEA services will be there to help Lily Mae find accommodation and employment in her adult life.
- IHC helps older people move into retirement by making sure that they and their family/whanau have a voice in important decisions around changes in their care and where they live.
