2017 TASH Conference has ended

Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Still We Rise for Equity, Opportunity, and Inclusion,” shows the resilience of individuals with disabilities and their families across the lifespan. Conference attendees will celebrate their passion for disability rights, civil rights, and human rights while exploring inclusive communities, schools, and workplaces that support people with disabilities, including those with complex support needs. Return to TASH website.

H&J Sauces

In 2014, New Garden Gifts Special Barbecue Sauce was given to Anchor of Hope Foundation, a local nonprofit that serves the 1 in 6 with developmental disabilities. Sam Goolsby was the founder of New Garden Gifts Special Barbecue Sauce. Upon his death the company passed to his wife, Ms. Shirley Goolsby, who, along with her brother, decided to donate the business as a source of funding for Anchor of Hope. Now its own entity, H&J Sauces is proud to carry on the traditions of taste, community, and giving attached to this sauce. 

According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, 20% of people in the U.S. population have a disability, and more than 50% of those individuals are unemployed. H&J Sauces gives these individuals a chance to become entrepreneurs as H&J Ambassadors, and a portion of the proceeds from sauce sales are donated to Anchor of Hope Foundation, a local nonprofit with the same mission of serving individuals facing developmental disability.
