According to the US Census Bureau, about 6.2% of children (ages 5 to 15) or 2.8 million kids have disabilities. About 20% of Americans between the ages of 16 and 64 suffer some form of physical, mental, or emotional impairment. And almost all of those mentioned can benefit from the help and support of local nonprofit organizations.
