About the

Included. Supported. Empowered.

4.6 million Americans have an intellectual or developmental disability (I/DD).

Too often, they are undervalued and their abilities are overlooked.

Even their support networks go unnoticed.

The skill, commitment and hard work of supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities has for too long gone unrecognized.

These untold stories—of lifting the human spirit beyond all expectations—have inspired the ANCOR Foundation to launch a three-year national public awareness campaign.

This ambitious multimedia effort—known as Included. Supported. Empowered.will spotlight the everyday work of professionals who make it possible for people of ALL abilities to thrive as individuals and as active, valued, contributing members of our communities.

Join us as we celebrate and educate. Included. Supported. Empowered. showcases successes of people with I/DD, how policies and programs make success possible, how philanthropy enhances these efforts, and how employers and communities provide vital partnerships and opportunities.

These are the untold stories of your neighbors, relatives and colleagues. These are the role models we’ve been waiting for.
