Our goal is simple: to be the main source of support for people with disabilities who might be in need of help and advice.
For the thousands of people with disabilities in the United States who don’t have access to facilities that can help them achieve their life mission, Disability Inclusive Development Programs and Services provides them with training and information on how their lives can be made easier.
While differently able-d, we don’t let our community members view that disability as a problem. Instead, we show them how they’re still perfectly able to achieve whatever they set their mind to. It’s just that their road to success is a little different than everyone else’s.
DIDEPAS is here to improve the lives of our youth, children, girls and women with disabilities in any way we can!
Disability Inclusive Development Programs And Services has been created by some of the most brilliant, compassionate, and skilled individuals. They have years of experience working directly with people affected by various difficulties. They have witnessed first-hand the hardships and barriers faced by the differently-abled due to their physical or intellectual disabilities. Learn more about these amazing people below!
