Thank you, CareSource Foundation, for supporting our Life Skills Program for youth and young adults in our community living with disabilities. Our interactive Life Skills classes are bridging the gap of employment for people with disabilities, teaching healthy habits, and educating youth with disabilities. Our programs aim to eliminate disparities in health and poverty and prepare youth for competition employment opportunities.

According to The National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NiDILRR), in 2016 just 35.9% of people with disabilities aged 18-64 living in the community were employed.
