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.
