Spectrum for Living, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of those born with developmental disabilities, has renewed its annual “Wall of Love” campaign. The Wall of Love, available at this link, allows patrons to donate in the memory of a loved one lost to disability, or otherwise with a thoughtful message of support. The minimum amount required to get a heart on the Wall of Love is $25, all going towards the organization’s goal of $5000 raised this Valentine’s Day for the disabled.
Spectrum for Living was founded in 1978 by a group of parents from Bergen County concerned about their children born with developmental disabilities. Since then, the organization has dedicated itself to ensuring that every individual is given the physical and emotional support needed to reach their fullest potential in life. To further this, the organization currently operates 28 Intermediate Care Facilities in three NJ counties providing intermediate care to over 800 people, with the first one having opened in Closter, NJ in 1983. The organization also offers group home living, supervised apartments, and a network of adult training centers to offer educational and recreational opportunities while maintaining the agency and dignity of the patients in its care.
