Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and take time to reflect on his words- they are as important now as ever before.

Though the work he started is far from over, we can honor his legacy today by continuing the fight for equality and working to create communities where everyone has the resources, opportunities, and support they need to thrive.

Project Connect behind the scenes

MYEP is proud to be loaded with talented, dedicated, and passionate employees. A longtime standout in providing amazing supports, in truly getting to know those he works with, and developing real, meaningful connections to those we serve is, Alex Flesher. He has shined his light and talents on so many of the people we serve. Recently, he took an idea from origin to the end and provided a once in a lifetime, dream come true opportunity of making music to a handful of the musical guys he provides supports to. The process and results are truly inspiring.

Alex had the idea to facilitate music making with these guys and took the bull by the horns. He researched and pursued grant and funding opportunities to make it happen. With persistence, hard work, advocacy and utilization of community connections Alex was awarded funding and Project Connect was born. Music was made, connections were made, and dreams were made.

Please have a listen and look at what was created. We hope the results of this project are just as inspiring to all of you as they have been to all of us. We are also including more information on the project and its many contributors. MYEP cannot express strongly enough the gratitude and respect we have for all of you.

On July 26th, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law! The ADA is an important civil rights law that works to ensure all people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. We know there is still work to be done, but today letโ€™s celebrate 30 years of progress made possible by the ADA!

What you might not know is heโ€™s also standing in what used to be the Hayden Fry Room at La Casa Mexican Restaurant.
