A community for inclusion.
A community for life.

The ANCOR Foundation is dedicated to expanding the commitment and capacity of providers and communities dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with disabilities.

Through our work, we recognize and assist those who provide the programs, resources and information that empower people with disabilities to live more independently, enjoy greater accessibility and build self-reliance, self-confidence and self-satisfaction.


ANCOR offers leadership development for community providers through its partnership with the Stephen R. Covey group (Lighthouse Leaders) and the University of Delaware Leadership Institute.


Recognize those individuals, communities or organizations that have had the courage to make inclusivity their mission—that is, those who have worked tirelessly so that people with disabilities may participate as contributing, valued members of their communities.
