ADD Resources Closure March 1,2016
It is with saddened hearts that the ADD Resources Board of Directors announce the closure of ADD Resources effective March 1, 2016. We have been battling financial struggles for the past few years and are no longer able to stay open. It has been a wonderful 22 years of sharing of resources, strategies, engaging support groups, and education with deep relationships formed and the betterment of many lives. Thank you for being part of the journey.
ADD Resources has a long-standing reputation as a trusted resource. Our mission at ADD Resources is to help people with ADHD achieve their full potential through education, support and networking opportunities. Those who use our resources are typically intelligent, creative and highly energetic.
ADD Resources is a nonprofit run by an executive director and adult volunteers with oversight by the Board of Directors. Our primary funding sources are grants, donations and memberships. Cynthia Hammer founded established our organization as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in 1994.
First, we are independent and are able to provide authoritative, accurate and science-based information without conflicts arising. Second, we believe that the power of direct human connection is the foundation for all that we do. We look forward to sharing programs in use and under development, both nationally and internationally. Third, our service area for live programs is the Pacific Northwest yet we attract over half our members from all over the United States and some from foreign countries because of the resources we make available to all.
Our website features numerous articles and recorded audio and visual media. The International ADHD Directory is growing to include more categories of ADHD-friendly services. Our monthly e-News keeps our subscribers informed. Monthly, we organize and run anywhere from six to ten inform & support groups in the Pacific Northwest for education, exchange of information and camaraderie.
