Riverside...Empowering people with developmental disabilities to live rich and full lives.

Riverside is 45! Imagine That! What a wonderful journey it’s been!

With a little help from our friends, one constant remains, Riverside changes lives.

You may know Billy. He is 48 years old and was born with Angelman’s Syndrome. With Riverside’s support, Billy is able to be part of and participate fully in the community. This is very important, gratifying and meaningful for Billy. He thoroughly enjoys engaging with new people and his environment. He communicates his enthusiasm for life, and his care and concern toward others, in a very distinct way.

Billy inspires all of us to connect with each other, participate in the community, and live our lives to the fullest of our abilities.

Like all of us, Riverside participants’ lives are transformed through active engagement. Today across the tri-county community, hundreds of Riverside participants work, volunteer, and participate in recreational activities that help them grow and create meaningful and memorable experiences. Participants range in age from 18 to 65 years old and come from 33 towns in the Pioneer Valley.

Please make your gift today to ensure that Riverside participants, and thereby all of us, are able to live rich and meaningful lives.

With warmest regards,

Char Gentes

President & CEO

P.S. IMAGINE THAT! In 1968, six young adults, living with developmental disabilities, landed their first job in Leeds manufacturing perfume – called the “Flame of Hope!”
