Message from our State Director
As I begin my journey as the new state director for Best Buddies Texas, I am honored and privileged to be a part of such an impactful and life-changing organization. I truly believe the individuals and friendships that Best Buddies Texas supports are the heart of the organization.
Best Buddies Texas stands for hope. Hope that the world can focus on the beauty of all individuals. Hope that no one will ever have to cope with the pain of loneliness and separation due to their intellectual or developmental differences. Hope that friendships and inclusion are the common thread for all students, not only in Texas, but across the globe.
Since launching in 1993, Best Buddies Texas’ programs have grown close to 70 statewide chapters with 4,479 participants. We currently impact over 44,479 parents, teachers, friends, and community members in Texas.
We are building a more inclusive world, one friendship at a time, by erasing the invisible line that too often isolates those with disabilities within the schools, workplaces, and lives.
Thank you for all of your support in 2014. I look forward to working with you to continue building on Best Buddies Texas’ success from this past year of promoting friendships across the state and having an even greater impact on more individuals’ lives in 2015.
