Meet The Challenge!

Stavros was founded by Chris Palames and some of his friends in 1974.  Bill Martin was one of those friends. In the early 1970’s people with disabilities had little or no opportunities to live in the community. Bill Martin was working at Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission at the time and decided to take a leap of faith and help start an agency that would advocate for the rights of people with disabilities. He helped secure some of the initial funding and helped the process of helping people with disabilities live in the community.

Fast forward 44 years and he wants to help again. Bill loves to provide access to people with disabilities and would like to help build ramps for people that cannot afford it through our Home Sweet Home Program.

Bill has issued a challenge. He will match $1000 every month we raise a $1000 for 12 months, starting in May 2018.  WOW! That is amazing! This means that every month we raise a $1000 we can get another $1000. That will be $24,000 in a year. That’s a lot of ramps! Can You HELP?

We are looking for people who are willing to give one time or monthly donations to the Stavros Home Sweet Home Program. You can send your donation of ANY AMOUNT in the mail to: Stavros, PO Box 2130, Amherst, MA 01004 or give here.

If you have questions or need more information please contact Angelina at aramirez@stavros.org or 413-781-5555 ext 315

We hope you can help people with disabilities live in the community by helping us achieve $1000 every month. Thanks!
