The Differently-Abled Network(c). DAN,a community outreach effort


The DAN is a new community outreach program serving as the membership arm of  White Apple Institute (WAI). The network is composed of  Persons with  Disability and a supportive group of neighbors who want to recognize  those striving to help themselves succeed as contributing and productive  citizens. They meet to help White Apple Institute identify the  Underserved in their communities and restore HOPE by sharing their stories, information and local opportunities. Members invite “disability  and veteran friendly” businesses, schools and social groups that really  want to recognize and help those who are striving to help themselves. 

 The  Differently-Abled Network meetings are a WIN-WIN for recruiters to  increase their pool of potential employees and students, while sharing  career tips and job opportunities. It is also a WIN_WIN  opportunity for those who are willing to ASK for what they NEED to  SUCCEED to finish school/college goals and SUCCEED in the WORKPLACE! rig
