How You Can Help
We believe that partnership and networking are very important for building strong organizations that work on building an inclusive community. We work on many partnership projects and we are open to collaboration and new ideas. Feel free to contact us.
Volunteering is one of the most challenging, yet rewarding, adventures you will ever experience in your life. Volunteers are driven by a single purpose: to leave the world in a better place than they found it. If you have been inspired to volunteer, Poraka Nova is the right place for you.
To donate means to give something — money, goods, or time — to some cause, such as a charity. “Donation” has a more altruistic meaning than does simply “giving”; it suggests that you don’t expect anything in return for the contribution. Ask us what we need, or consult our donation page.
Disability advocacy is required in a variety of circumstances— education, employment, healthcare, housing, faith, technology, transportation, and more. We have a board of advocates and of self-advocates. You could be a legal or social advocate, who could litigate for disability rights, or you could work toward furthering disability rights through social change and public policy. Contact us if you are interested.
