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.
