Social Hangouts for Teens with Disabilities
We create inclusive social spaces for teens with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) to form meaningful connections with their peers. We host hangouts and special events where teens can make friends, share their unique talents and abilities, strengthen their sense of belonging, and gain self-confidence along the way.
Our programming is free to participants and their families; we believe friendship should be accessible to all, regardless of race, gender, national origin, religion, or economic status.
