Community Participation


We are building inclusion one place, one person at a time. By supporting people with developmental disabilities in becoming part of different clubs, organizations, jobs, and volunteer work, we make room for gifts that would otherwise be missing in the community.

79% of people served have a valued social role in the community that is either paid or unpaid. Of those with a valued social role, 35% have both paid and regular unpaid roles such as a volunteer position or internship.
