An Evaluation of the Sam Sullivan Disability Foundation
The Sam Sullivan Disability Foundation (SSDF) is a fundraising entity supporting six not-for-profit societies that provide opportunities for social engagement for people with disabilities. The six societies provide design opportunities for accessibility solutions; connect people with employment, training, and social opportunities in the community; and make sailing, music, gardening, and the great outdoors more accessible. This research project will look at the impact and effectiveness of the SSDF programming on the lives of people with disabilities. This project will provide an understanding on how cost-effective the programming is, the actual numbers of people being served, how meaningful the service is, and how much potential healthcare cost is being saved by the service.
