We began organizing trips once a month that included the necessary access services that allowed disabled persons to enjoy more recreational events. As the years went on, we realized that disabled persons needed help in their homes, particularly the totally blind who require assistance with such tasks as reading mail, necessary paper work, running errands and keeping medical appointments. Now we help people with everyday problems. We are the only organization that steps in to help disabled adults with emergencies without requiring a ton of paperwork and we can help someone immediately. For example, if someone calls because they need a winter coat, that need is filled immediately.

The Jorge Posada Foundation is a non-profit organization established by the New York Yankees’ All-Star Catcher, Jorge Posada, and his wife, Laura. Their son, Jorge Jr., was diagnosed with Craniosynostosis when he was just ten days old and had to undergo five major surgeries to correct the condition.

Through the Foundation, the Posada Family is able to: reach out to those families in need, whose children are affected by Craniosynostosis, and provide them with emotional support through its family support network; provide financial assistance to underwrite a portion of the costs of initial surgeries in its partner medical centers; and encourage further research of this medical condition. The Foundation also strives to create awareness through events and through funding other educational outreach efforts.
