Our purpose is to change the way the world defines and views disabilities by making profound, positive differences in people’s lives every day.
With the help of our supporters we are “taking on disability together” and working to enrich the lives of people living with disabilities and special needs by providing opportunities to live, learn, work, and play in their communities!
