No Limits Eastern Shore:   Open Windows

Our Open Windows page is designed to ensure accountability and transparency in our operations as a state-funded provider of brain injury services – in other words, to provide an open window into our activities! The graphics/charts below provide information on the numbers and types of activities at No Limits Eastern Shore, as well as how many individuals we have served, how many hours of volunteer service our participants have provided in the community (and how many volunteer hours the community has provided to us), and other significant events for the quarter. We also provide our 501(c)3 charity and other related documentation here.
