DIGITAL PORTFOLIOS CREATED
Integrate for Good launched with an inclusive leadership team comprised of people with and without disabilities. We each bring our own diverse background and experience to this work. Integrate for Good acknowledges that although professionals can be well-educated in disability-related subjects, those living with disabilities are the true experts. One of our biggest priorities is creating opportunities for people with disabilities to be celebrated as true leaders in all aspects of our work. It is also one of our proudest accomplishments.
Since our launch in July of 2017, Integrate for Good volunteers donated more than 6,000 hours of their time to strengthen local communities. 40 students and adults with disabilities living in Montgomery County created digital portfolios 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 guest lectures and 3 individuals with intellectual disabilities assume ongoing leadership roles as teachers and experts in the field.
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 these positive outcomes!
