Through its grants, the Foundation aims to empower people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to • Make choices and decisions based on their own aspirations. • Live as independently and be as productive as possible. • Participate fully in their communities. We envision a world in which people with disabilities will • Share ordinary places in their local communities (such as stores, gyms, libraries and museums) at the same time and in the same ways as their neighbors. • Develop a support network that includes a wide range of personal and social relationships. • Fill valued roles in and make contributions to their communities.
