Honor the memory of your loved one


From all of us at ADEC, we are sorry for your loss and grateful that you would consider creating a fundraiser for ADEC to honor the memory of your loved one.

By supporting ADEC, you are helping the people we serve discover their true potential and accomplish their dreams during their lifetime.

Donations from people like you have made it possible for Terry Lanham to meet his idol, Tony Stewart, before he passed away. He was so excited about the opportunity that he ran straight out the door and ran in loops around the parking lot. 

Another individual ADEC served, Robert, always dreamed of going to a casino. With thanks to support from people like you, ADEC staff was able to work with Robert to help him save money and arrange a trip to New Buffalo before he passed away.

ADEC is a nonprofit that serves individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Elkhart and St. Joseph counties. We believe that the people we serve deserve A life of their own, complete with Dignity, Employment and Community.

Thanks to the support of people like you, ADEC helps more than 1,000 individuals discover their true potential and accomplish their dreams each year. Just to give you an idea, in 2017:
  • ADEC artists sold $11,176 in artwork, earning a paycheck and a reputation.
  • 45 children with disabilities attended ADEC's summer camp.
  • ADEC helped more than 300 individuals with disabilities find meaningful work in the community.
Thank you for supporting ADEC's mission.
