Hiring someone with Down syndrome or other Cognitive Impairment

Monday, May 21, 2012 @ 6:28 PM

You know the old saying about putting your money where your mouth is!? Well, at Band of Angels we are so very committed to finding opportunities for adults with disabilities. So, we have a part time job that you can do from your home. We would very much like to fill this position with someone with Down syndrome, autism or a cognitive challenge. It involves lots of typing! Let us know if you are interested. Write to Liz@bandofangels.com.

Meet popular blogger Kelle Hampton, author of "Enjoying the Small Things" and new book "Bloom"

Wednesday, May 16, 2012 @ 8:34 PM

Weigand's hosts fundraiser with Kelle Hampton to support Band of Angels Outreach

Wiegand's Nursery will host a book signing with writer and photographer Kelle Hampton known by many for her popular blog, "Enjoying the Small Things". Hampton's first book, "Bloom", takes readers on a wondrous journey through Nella's first year of life. Nella has Down Syndrome and Kelle has chronicled the joys and challenges of her daughter's life.

Kelle has personal ties to the area and we are honored to have her partner with Band of Angels for this event.

Please share this message with friends and teachers and support groups. Let's make Michigan Kelle's favorite stop. Look for a very special treat, as Weigand's is creating a special plant just for the day. It will be available at the nursery. It is quite unique to have a customized plant hybridized just for an occasion like this, but Kelle also has close ties with the great folks at Weigand's! See you there.

All profits from the sale of perennial and annuals on Saturday, June 9th, along with a select list of plants will benefit Band of Angels Outreach Programs.

Gather your friends and family and vist Wiegands for beautiful flowers and the opportunity to meet Kelle Hampton and your friends from Band of Angels.

Starry Night Recap!

Tuesday, May 01, 2012 @ 1:59 PM

Starry Night 2012 was a wonderful success! We introduced our new mobile app; everyone met race car driver Kyle Sarasin, and we shared our vision with our donors and supporters in the room.  Best of all, our newest and most ambitious initiative ever was introduced. Band of Angels will be working with Oakland County, under the leadership of Honorary Chair Matthew Gibb, to ensure that persons with cognitive challenges are represented in the Oakland County workforce. First the county, then the state, and then the sky is the limit!

By the end of summer, individuals with cognitve challenges will be posting their resumes and skills to our propietary website and we will screen and share these with many area employers. To learn more about Jobs with Dignity, contact Cynthia Hutchison directly at 248-377-9309. This is shaping up to be a banner year!!
