The mission of the Angelman Syndrome Foundation is to advance the awareness and treatment of Angelman syndrome through education and information, research, and support for individuals with Angelman syndrome, their families and other concerned parties. Angelman syndrome (AS) is a rare neuro-genetic disorder that causes developmental delay, lack of speech, seizures, and walking and balance disorders. Individuals with Angelman syndrome will require life-long care. We exist to give all of them a reason to smile, with the ultimate goal of finding a cure.
Cache Valley Center for the Arts, CacheArts for short, works to promote the arts throughout our region. This includes managing Logan city's facilities, nurtuting creative entrepreneurs and acting as a sponsor for arts startups. CacheArts supports touring artists, arts classes, the Gallery Walk, Logan Youth Shakespeare, puppet making in the schools, Utah Festival Opera, Music Theater West, and many more programs. CacheArts is within $13,000 of a goal to receive a $1,000,000 match from the Eccles Foundation.
At SeeeMe (Sustainable Engineering, Economics, and Education), we believe that serving others can affect those serving as much as those being served. SeeeMe recently built a school near Mbale, Uganda. We also organize teams of volunteers once or twice a year to travel to Uganda and conduct specific projects requested by small, usually remote, village communities, primary schools and orphanages.
At our meeting, we voted for... Angelman Syndrome Foundation of Utah
