Your Donation Dollars

Via of the Lehigh Valley provides vital services for children and adults with disabilities across the Lehigh Valley. Your generous gift helps Via provide leadership, support, opportunities and resources for people with disabilities so that they may enjoy independent, productive and full lives within the community.

Please consider making a gift today.

Here’s what your dollars can do:

  • $4,000 allows a high school student to participate in a nine-week, paid internship program, gaining hands-on work experience and making professional connections.
  • $1,250 helps underwrite one month of job coaching to help an individual with a disability find a job in our community.
  • $500 provides a week of career exploration and fun for a teen with a disability in Via’s Teen Summer Experience.
  • $300 helps underwrite two weeks of career exploration for local high school students.
  • $250 helps underwrite 3 ½ hours of physical, occupational or speech therapy for a child.
  • $150 provides three adults the opportunity to connect to their community by participating in a recreational activity like watching a ball game, going to dinner or catching a movie with friends.
  • $25 buys a special switch used to adapt toys and allows a child with disabilities to play independently.

With your help, Via will continue to create success every day for the children and adults we serve. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference. Thank you for your support.

How to get involved



To comply with Governor Wolf’s mandate that non-essential businesses be closed and with guidance from the PA Office of Developmental Programs (ODP), that funds many of our programs, Small Group Employment, many Community Employment Services, Creative Expressions Adult Training Facility and Prevocational Workshop are closed for participants until the mandate is lifted. 

However, ODP has determined that home and community-based services are considered life-sustaining and are exempt from the Governor’s directive asking for the closure of all non-essential businesses.  Therefore, Via will provide limited Community Participation supports, In-Home services and Behavioral Support services.  As we learn more from ODP, coordinators will reach out to participants about services that are available.  We are reaching out to Via staff now to determine who can provide these services. 

Coordinators are working remotely and are available by email or phone to answer your questions.  Please contact your coordinator by email or phone if you need anything or email
