For Disabled Adults and their Families
1 in 5 Americans has a disability. That makes 56 million people, the largest minority group in the country. Most of us have had our lives touched by disability – whether it’s you or someone you know who has one – and any of us could. Yet, statistically, someone with a disability is much more likely to be undereducated, out of work, or in poor health than someone without one.
There are great people out there working hard to close these gaps. But the process of finding them is so often inefficient, outdated, or confusing that many people are left feeling isolated and disempowered.
