Everyone is able to


Independence Through GRACE Foundation offers a variety of programs and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, or diverse abilities. We believe that every person has inherent value in God’s eyes, and our programs are designed to empower our participants to live with independence and contribute to their communities.


Our programs are personalized to fit the needs and goals of the individual, and might include enrichment activities, community service projects, seeking employment, or starting their own microenterprise. No matter the path they choose, we strive to get each and every participant to a place of independence and integration into the local community.
