Throughout our 36 years, PAD was fortunate to have had opportunities for collaboration and support from a variety of organizations, foundations, corporations, and a multitude of private citizens. This support allowed us to build a strong service system and develop initiatives which were current, innovative and responsive to the needs of our consumers.
