Share Your Blessings, Inc. (SYB) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (EID 20-3980183) that is dedicated to enhancing and inspiring the lives of disadvantaged individuals and their families. Our goal is to offer programs and support that promote value, acceptance, and inclusion so that each individual and each child can address life’s challenges, achieve personal goals, and fulfill their potential to lead positive, productive, happy, and rewarding lives. Recipients of our services include special education schools and classrooms, therapists, families, and organizations that have or serve children and adults with a wide range of disabilities and special needs (such as down syndrome, autism, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, visual impairment, intellectual impairment, physical impairment, and much more).
SYB was formed to pursue this mission in 2006. Since inception, our Project Maestro program has reached thousands of children and individuals with a multitude of special needs and that are struggling with these disabilities. Our objective is to help these affected individuals learn and grow with their physical, cognitive, communicative, sensory and social/emotional skills while they are also having fun.
Meet Share Your Blessings CEO, Janice Mollo.
Children and individuals with disabilities and special needs represent a significant portion of our population with many challenging learning and therapy issues. Key statistics include the following:
Thus, there is a great need to support the growth and development of this unique and disadvantaged special needs population in the United States. This is compounded by the fact that: (a) life skills and other learning can be very difficult as traditional education methods and tools are often not effective; and (b) health care costs are quadrupled for individuals with special needs, estimated at about $1 Million to age 18 (USDA CNPP report). Families that have children with special needs are often under a great deal of financial stress, and are continually searching for reasonably priced, cost effective tools and ways to assist their child develop and learn.
Share Your Blessings, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation that was formed in 2006 to help individuals and families with a wide variety of specials needs, disabilities and difficult situations, including visual impairment, intellectual impairment, physical impairment, and the like. In 2007, Share Your Blessings received its first donations from several founding Donors, and has subsequently continued to receive additional donations from a variety of sources. In early 2015 we received more generous donations, as well as commitments for further donations, which have allowed us to plan more substantial programs and services. SYB operates with a range of volunteers and thus has a low overhead which is primarily funded by the founding and certain other Donors as well as an annual Fundraiser – therefore, 100% of every additional dollar received goes to providing programs and services that support our mission. Our historical programs provided eligible individuals and organizations with an innovative therapy, teaching, and interactive music system that utilizes music and play to engage individuals with special needs. As of January 2022, Project Maestro has helped over 1100 families and organizations - reaching over 16,000 individuals, many that are struggling with the substantial cost associated with various disabilities, aiding the affected individuals to learn and grow with their physical, cognitive, communicative, sensory and social/emotional skills.
