35 Stories for 35 Years


It’s our 35th anniversary! We’ve been helping young people with disabilities and their families in New York City since 1983 when three moms of kids with disabilities decided to found Resources for Children with Special Needs — now INCLUDEnyc.

In celebration of our 35th year, we’re sharing 35 stories — one every week — for the rest of the year. Find out how we started, what we’ve been up to, and what our dreams are for the future of young people with disabilities.
