Collaborating with fellow nonprofits and business leaders is a driving principle of CMM Cares.

Please meet another one of our Adopted Families for 2022. At 4 years old, Steven suffered an illness that led to encephalitis with severe neurological devastation (nonverbal) and became wheelchair-bound. The doctors informed the family that Steven was expected to be bedbound with limited function in movement and would require total care. Today at age 11, Steve requires total care and 24/7 shift nursing as he still suffers from minor seizures throughout the day and cannot be left unsupervised.
On April 24, 2022, the family faced yet another devasting challenge. A fire destroyed their apartment unit and all of Steven’s expensive adaptable equipment and supplies. With our support, we can help this family get back on their feet and relieve some of the financial burdens of replacing Steven’s medical equipment and furnishing their apartment to make it feel like home.
Please read on for their story and see how CMM Cares plans to help. If you are interested in helping us support this family, send us a message or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. ... See MoreSee Less
