Here's some more information on an amazing organization that is changing lives daily!
Their mission is to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Best Buddies created the 2020 Initiative in 2011, with the goal of opening offices in all 50 states, expanding into 100 countries, and impacting 3 million people with and without IDD worldwide by the end of 2020.
The initiative also includes plans to train 4,000 Buddy Ambassadors, develop 1,000 jobs for people with IDD around the world, and increase the number of school-based chapters to 2,500.
As a result of these ambitious expansion efforts, Best Buddies hopes to become a household name by the end of 2020.

"She's the best!
Monica has a great personality, a vast knowledge in Real Estate and won't be pushy. Very easy to deal with.
Monica was very professional, informative, polite and dedicated with the sell of our home. She did a great job marketing and going above and beyond to get the home sold. We were so pleased with Monica, we used her to purchase our second home. Also, we have a rental home in gilbert that we are thinking about selling, and Monica will be the first person i call!!
Monica Scott did an amazing job facilitating my needs and finding just the right property. I am looking to purchase a condominium in a historic district and Monica found a complex that I love. No units are currently available, so Monica found an apartment across the street from the condo for me to rent until one comes on the market. I found my realtor, highly recommend!
Monica was always there to show me properties and I was renting back from buyers on my previous house. So I was in a time crunch to find a new place so I could make one move and not get into a lease. She was very helpful and we made multiple offers on properties, but we finally closed by the time I had to move out and get into my new property. She is very good at her job and loves her work and always has something good to say about every choice you make."
