The last two years have taught us many things about the state of services and supports for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and autism living in Massachusetts.
But one thing is clearer than everything else: people’s lives are fundamentally different than they were pre-pandemic.
Individuals who are turning 22 and transitioning into adult services face a vastly different landscape than those who turned 22 as recently as two years ago.
Employment opportunities have fundamentally changed in a world turned hybrid.
Advocacy needs have never been higher for so many state and federal pieces of legislation, where our community is so often overlooked.
But our community has also never been stronger, never been braver, and never been more united.
Make a gift today to support the important work ahead and affirm your belief in a brighter future for individuals with IDD and autism.
