Press Release | Together We Give

Disability Network Empowers Community Awareness

Disability Network Northern Michigan is putting our own spin on Giving Tuesday this holiday season with Together We Give. Disability Network extends an invitation to virtually speak at regional service organizations and businesses where we would share how Together We Give empowers you to raise community awareness about disabilities. 

We also welcome the opportunity to share details about the Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work program and other work incentive programs for people with disabilities. As an employer, it is important to understand the benefits for employees with disabilities that want to return to gainful employment. Our Employment Specialist can assist employees and employers with work incentives and guidance on navigating back to the workplace. These services can be initiated and provided virtually if necessary. Connect with our Employment Specialist, John Burtrum, to coordinate meeting details at 231 922 0903 ext. 327 or email John at

Together, giving is the way we build inclusive and welcoming communities. Join us as we come together to impact change, reduce structural and societal barriers, while we work to make our communities welcoming for people of all abilities. Support us online at
