Ellen Hollis has been a May Mom for nearly 30 years. At our 2022 Hope & Possibility event, she spoke eloquently about the power of community in her daughter’s life and that of her family. We’re honored to share her story.

The opening of the new May Center School for Brain Injury and Neurobehavioral Disorders was one of the highlights of the past year. It also was the culmination of years of preparation and planning to design a campus perfectly suited to meet the needs of this vibrant community.
May Institute has always been a community, since its early days in the 1950s. The group of parents who first joined together were determined to find a way to help their children lead meaningful and happy lives, and they experienced fellowship through the community they created.
That fellowship has continued to this day, and so has the power of shared interests and goals.
Through the challenges of the past few years, we have pulled together and have been there for each other — sometimes in person, sometimes remotely, sometimes through kind words or deeds, and often in spite of hardship, fear, or uncertainty. The May community has never been more unified or connected, in spite of the myriad challenges that resulted from COVID.
On these pages, we celebrate our individuals and families, employees, corporate partners, and donors who touched our lives this year and made our organization stronger and more vibrant and resilient. We thank you for being a member of our community.
We are moved time and again by the power of the work that takes place across our schools, residences, and centers every day at May Institute. Thank you for your support of that work.
With sincere gratitude and best wishes,
Dr. Lauren C. Solotar
President and CEO
