Would you like to engineer a dream for someone?
Sometimes, a device is all that stands in the way of an individual with a disability achieving independence or pursuing their passion. And when that device is not available in the marketplace, that’s when May We Help steps in. May We Help volunteers design, build, and deliver custom devices at no cost to hundreds of clients every year.
The team consists of approximately 75 engineers, industrial designers, inventors, welders, woodworkers, seamstresses, doctors, OTs, PTs, and makers and thinkers of all types. The general sentiment of a May We Help volunteer is best summed up by this volunteer who said,
“There’s nothing as satisfying as using my skill set to help others.”
And while at many non-profits, volunteers assist the staff to see through the organization’s mission, at May We Help, the staff exists to support the work of the volunteers. Better still, the founders remain two of the organization’s key workhorses.
