Welcome







Welcome! Teens and young adults with disabilities often have questions about the future, like "Where can I get my first real job? How do I get my own place? How can I pay college tuition? Should I disclose my disability to employers or professors?"

We created this website to help young adults with disabilities in the DC area answer these questions and plan for their future. We hope that these success stories and local resources will help ALL teens and young adults achieve their dreams. Learn more about our team.
