When/where/how did you learn our project?
We first learned about Trailhead from James, who's a member of the Trailhead Team. We had worked with James’ marketing company and he thought we might be a good fit so he introduced us to the Trailhead team.
What is your reason for joining our team?
Right away we were excited about the Trailhead mission and excited to get involved in the project. Having limited involvement with the DD community we did not realize the dire need of housing for the growing population with elderly caretakers. Typically, in our work we are so focused on the aesthetic of a project and not always the cause, so it feels great to be involved with a project that we can feel like we're actually giving back and making a difference.
What about our mission spoke to your heart?
Ian has a cousin with a developmental disability, growing up with a family of four brothers, Ross immediately became our fifth brother. He would attend all of our sporting events, play ball with us in the driveway and the backyard, and then have us by his side when he would participate in the SpecialOlympics. Now that we are older it is dart playing and movies in the basement, and car rides to scoop the loop of the town square whenever I return home for the holidays. This mission gives so much independence to the DD community, and will help them thrive the same way that I’ve been able to see my cousin thrive.
What is your connection to the world of developmental disabilities, if any?
Along with Ian’s cousin above, growing up both Alex and Ian used to accompany their parents and other family members who volunteered with the Special Olympics. It was always a great time connecting with the kids/adults and we feel lucky to have found a new way to get involved with the DD community.
