Michael Beers grew up in Missoula, MT riding the “short bus” to school.  Today Michael works at Summit Independent Living in Missoula as the Youth Transitions Coordinator.  He spends his days encouraging and supporting young people in our commmunity as they prepare for life after high school.  In addition, he travels our state and the country spreading the positive word of Disability Advocacy to students, parents and professionals.  He has always had a dream of touring using a “short bus” as transportation.

We have been searching for a bus for a long time.  On March 25, 2016 we found one in Missoula.  The owner has given us a great deal on the bus.  It will need new tires and some work but it is a solid vehicle.

We are asking you, our friends, to help us buy and refurbish this bus and then follow us on Facebook as we take it on the road encouraging young people with a disability to pursue their dreams.
