Together, we have a stake in building opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

ANCOR Foundation, Inc. is embarking on a three-year national public awareness campaign using diverse digital marketing, social and traditional media to:

  • Convey the value and importance of community services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) to the general public,
  • Highlight the support networks that enable people with I/DD to succeed, and
  • Shine a positive light on the successes of community integration and the role of providers in supporting people with I/DD to be active, valued, and contributing members of their communities.

Included. Supported. Empowered.Included. Supported. Empowered. will share stories about people with I/DD, their families, and their communities; about providers and support networks; and about positive trends and exciting careers in the field.

Included. Supported. Empowered. is more than a story-telling and media campaign -- it is a means for engaging all of us, regardless of our connections to the disability community, to ensure we afford everyone in the U.S. the opportunity to live independently and contribute to their communities and society – ultimately, benefitting all of us.
