There’s still time to help people with disabilities live life to the fullest this summer.

Creating Independence Together

Together we help thousands of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities realize a greater sense of independence by providing resources, opportunities and encouragement. Our impact changes lives.

Loving Homes

With your help, we give adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities options to choose where they want to live, with the support they need to make it “home.”

Faith Resources

We provide comprehensive resources to congregations and people of all abilities, so together we can grow in our faith.
