Our Vision

 

We envision communities where all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities grow, succeed, and belong.

We have a deep appreciation for difference and engage in advocacy designed to address and remove barriers that help achieve diversity, equity and inclusion for all people.
 

Community

We work with our partners to build upon and enhance the strengths that persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities possess, and we are committed to making a difference by informing and educating the community we serve about our mission.
