With Thanksgiving two short days away, I have not only been pining to gather with my family, but I’ve also been reflecting on the many things, people, and experiences I am thankful for. Included in my “thankful-fors” is my work with the Enable Savings Plan Alabama. I’ve decided to share a few of these blessings with you:
I am thankful for Enable Alabama’s mission. Our team believes that everyone should have access to financial independence, and we continue to make it our mission to help individuals with disabilities save, spend and earn money just like everyone else. I am grateful to support such an important cause on a daily basis.
I am thankful for Enable Alabama’s growth. Launched in February, Enable Alabama was designed to best serve the Alabama disability community’s needs, goals, and dreams for the future. I am happy to report that since its founding, the Enable Alabama program has been extremely successful, and has helped numerous individuals with disabilities across the state have the opportunity to save for short- and long-term expenses.
I am thankful for Enable Alabama’s impact. I have seen first-hand the positive effects it has had on the lives of so many individuals with disabilities and their families. Now, account owners can save up to $100,000 without worry of compromising their public benefits like Medicaid and SSI. Enable Alabama is not just a savings account program, it is also a life-changing opportunity for peace of mind, inclusion, and independence.
I am thankful for Enable Alabama’s Future. The passion and dedication behind Enable Alabama is exactly why it has been successful, and why it continues to grow, changing lives along the way. I am grateful for everything that I have learned working with Enable Alabama, and look forward to meeting more account owners and their families in the future.
From the Enable Alabama family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving. We are grateful for your involvement and support this year, and every year. Why are you thankful for Enable Alabama? Share your story on our Facebook wall.
