Strengthening local communities by creating inclusive opportunities for people with disabilities to contribute their time and talent.
We are proud of our numbers, but even prouder of the relationships behind them. Our research teaches us that people who are connected to other people are more likely to be housed, healthy, hired and happy. Integrate for Good is excited to contribute to a healthier and more inclusive community.
In the first two years since our launch, Integrate for Good volunteers donated more than 6,000 hours of their time to strengthen local communities. By hosting inclusive volunteer activities in partnership with our local nonprofit organizations, we achieve our mission while helping others to achieve their own. It might look like an extra set of hands in a soup kitchen, more friendly visits to senior centers, or additional sleeping mats made for people experiencing homelessness in our local community. Our community is strengthened when people with and without disabilities work side by side to make a difference.
40 students and adults with disabilities created digital portfolios (interactive, online resumes incorporating photography and videography) to showcase their strengths and abilities to local nonprofit leaders, potential employers and community members.
Integrate for Good leadership team members conducted more than 45 training sessions, in-service presentations, speaking engagements, conference sessions and university guest lectures.
3 individuals with intellectual disabilities assume ongoing leadership roles as teachers and experts around disability and inclusion.
