SPEAKER: Mary Latulippe is mom to Jenna, a 20 year old young lady who is blind and currently attends the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

Mary recently retired after spending  32 years  as a teacher and administrator at CCHS. She served her last three years as a Special Ed administrator at CCHS and on the CCISD transition team. This experience made a huge impact on the way she approaches and plans for Jenna's future. Mary's dream is to purchase and a property in the League City area for a day and residential program for adults with disabilities. 

 

Mary volunteers at her church registering individuals for the bi-monthly Galveston County food truck and as an office angel. She repurposes furniture in her spare time. She and Richard are also parents to Jenna's older brothers Richie and Joey.

TOPIC: To discuss the steps in becoming a non profit organization. 2) Discuss possibility of side by side purchasing a property once non profit status is obtained. 3) brainstorm uses of property If the group wants to continue with the non profit and the purchase of the property then we will need to assign/volunteer for items on an action plan.
