“What do you do?” 

It’s a simple question that many of us take for granted. It’s also a question that, historically, has excluded people with disabilities. Our mission is to help anyone with a disability achieve their dreams—and answer that question “what do you do?” with pride and confidence. A young man with Down Syndrome at his office job
