With over 30 years of experience working with people with disabilities, Angie has focused on using creativity to develop opportunities. "If they dream it, we work our hardest to help them with an experience of a lifetime."
BFF; Journeys, a 501(c)(3) non profit organization was created to do just that; to provide opportunities for individuals with disabilities to excel in their potential and help make their dreams come true. Everyone deserves a chance to dream and to see their dreams become a reality. We help people discover their journey that’s why it’s part of our name. The semi colon represents that there is something else to come and that the journey is not over.
Each one of our “Journeys” comes from ideas that we uncover by just asking people what they like to do. Additional "Journeys" are welcome and will be added as interests are discovered.
