About Us

The skill, commitment and hard work of supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) has for too long gone unrecognized. Their untold stories—of lifting the human spirit beyond all expectations—have inspired the ANCOR Foundation to launch a three-year national public awareness campaign. Join us as we showcase successes of people with I/DD and the providers whose support helps make it possible.

You Have A Stake

We all have a stake in building opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) because our communities and our society are stronger when everyone has the chance to live a life of dignity. Join us in our effort to educate people across the US about the vital role providers play in supporting people with I/DD to become contributing members of the communities where they live and work.
