SUPPORT YOUNG PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES AND THEIR FAMILIES


“INCLUDEnyc helped me understand my disability and find new ways to learn. They taught me how to advocate for myself.”
-Kayla, youth


Over the past year, INCLUDEnyc expanded programming and made certain our work was—and remains—responsive to the needs of young people with disabilities. Our organization is a trusted lifeline, connecting families to essential resources.
