For a community, compassion is measured by the people and the manner in which they support all its members. Everyone deserves the chance to succeed and, through the support of our community, Via is able to help children and adults with disabilities living in the Lehigh Valley.
Vias mission is to provide leadership, support, opportunities and resources for people so they may be independent, productive and enjoy full lives within the community. To fulfill that mission, Via hosts several events to educate the community about important programs for people with disabilities and engage community‐wide involvement through financial, advocacy and in‐kind support.
