For the Hope and the How

For the Hope and the How

People who reach out to us are often looking for hope—that their situations can change or improve, that there are possibilities for fulfillment and success. Or they have hope but need to know how—what supports or services can help, what they have the right to expect, or who can partner with them to get them where they want to go. We partner with people with disabilities, their families, and others who support them, to realize fulfilling possibilities in education, employment, health, and community living.
