STRIVE, which stands for Socialization, Transition, Reflection, Innovation, Vocation and Education, is a non-profit organization based in South Portland that assists tweens, teens, and young adults with intellectual disabilities.
STRIVE began in 1999 to provide recreational and social opportunities, with a focus on creating peer support. Today, the organization has grown to serve over 950 members through ten different social, educational, post-secondary, and employment programs. The goal of each program is simple–to provide opportunity and independence.
STRIVE’s 18th Annual Auction is from November 10th-17th, 2022. This year’s auction is a hybrid format. The in-person kick off is on November 10th, with the online auction closing on Thursday, November 17th. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit www.pslstrive.org/auction.
