Donate to Idaho Parents Unlimited!
IPUL's limited funding and resources allows us to support families who have children and youth with disabilities and complex health conditions throughout the state of Idaho.
Our programs are historically underfunded, and we are always grateful for individual contributions that support us in our efforts to meet the needs of more families and youth.
An example of a program with the greatest need is our Work of Art program. With Work of Art, IPUL partners with local artists and companies to provide paid work experience for students with disabilities who are transitioning from school to the workplace.
Your contribution will ensure young people with disabilities will have access to meaningful employment skill development, leading to happy, productive, and independent lives.
Your individual contribution is a direct investment in Idaho's families.
Idaho Parents Unlimited's Social Media Policy
Idaho Parents Unlimited has an online presence on several different platforms. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. While we post things on these services, we don't constantly monitor them for private messages. Facebook specifically has been unreliable in notifying us about private messages, due to having more than one page administrator. Therefore, if you send a message to our FB inbox, you will receive an automatic reply directing you to our website intake form or phone number. We'll do our best to check for messages each day, but we much prefer to use our systems that are designed to provide appropriate assistance.
We have also developed new policies regarding staff and their personal Facebook pages as well as other social media sites - including personal cell phones (text messaging). Frequently, our staff are tagged in posts on groups and expected to respond (or they feel obligated) after regular business hours. They also receive private instant messages via this technology as well.
Our company policy is that all staff have been instructed to respond to work-related messages only during our regular business hours (Monday-Friday; 9:00-5:00) or during their individually scheduled hours when they are each working using company equipment and resources only. If you contact employees with their personal messaging accounts, they are instructed to not respond, other than to direct you to our official channels.
We hope this will help us to be consistent in providing assistance as well as ensuring messages don't fall through the cracks. Thanks for understanding!
~Angela Lindig, Executive Director
