Keep young people with disabilities growing.
People with disabilities and their parents see limited opportunities after high school for employment, housing and connection to the community. There is no clear roadmap for a successful transition into adulthood.
As part of our smart investments and comprehensive plan to help people with disabilities live independently, United Way’s 21 & Able initiative helps young adults with disabilities transition smoothly from the last day of high school to the first day of adult life and beyond. 21 & Able is increasing employment and housing opportunities and supports so that young adults with disabilities have greater independence.
In the past 18 months, hundreds of people with disabilities and their families have benefitted from the opportunities for information, education and advocacy provided by United Way’s 21 and Able initiative. This information is solving real family challenges that affect their daily lives
