INCLUDEnyc

INCLUDEnyc is the leading nonprofit serving youth with disabilities and their families in New York City, especially those from low-income, immigrant, and underserved communities. Our mission is to foster positive futures for young people with any disability (birth to age 26) by creating access to educational, employment, and independent living opportunities, and advocating with families for meaningful inclusion in the broader community. For 37 years, we have helped families understand their rights, navigate important transition periods, and access services to support their child. We also work directly with young people to help them graduate from high school, explore postsecondary employment or higher education options, and develop self-advocacy and life skills. Each year, INCLUDEnyc reaches over 950,000 individuals with critical news, resources, and event information, while directly serving more than 8,000 youth, parents, and professionals with our multi-lingual Help Line, one-to-one community assistance, workshops and trainings, events, information resources, service referrals, and advocacy skills development. To ensure accessibility for everyone, all INCLUDEnyc programs are free, and offered in English and Spanish, with translation services available in 200+ other languages as needed.
