Did you know that government funding only provides 77% of the actual cost to provide our services to people with disabilities at Ray Graham Association?
By participating in our special events you will not only help us raise desperately needed funds, but also help us increase awareness of our services and the impact they have in the community.
Volunteers are also needed for all events. Please contact Mark Langan, Chief Development Officer at Mlangan@raygraham.org or 630-628-7174 for more information.
