The Gek sisters graduated from Special Education School and would like to continue practicing the skills they learned from school. After graduation, the daily support provided by the school system ends and many young adults who age out of high school programs fall off the “service cliff.”
They need to stay engaged! Their parents need support! Let us support Gek sisters to continue finding their true strengths through crafting.
