2020 was the year we would celebrate May's 65th anniversary. Instead, we have been living through times none of us could ever have anticipated.
Through all this, we have realized it's more important than ever to remember the legacy of Jacques and Marie-Anne May, their sons with autism, and their commitment to individuals with special needs. To celebrate the impact that May has had in the lives of hundreds of thousands of individuals and families. To thank our community of donors across the country for holding us close and holding us up. And to honor the work of the tens of thousands of staff who have spent years of their lives in service to others, and the more than 1,100 staff who are on the front lines at May today.
It takes a total and complete involvement with the child when you are with the child, it takes a special sensitivity to the needs of others, it takes an extraordinary imagination, and it takes much love.
- Marie-Anne May, Founder
