California Includes aims to open the door to opportunities and raise awareness of resources that address the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities in order to enable them to live a fulfilling and purpose-filled life through inclusion in opportunities such as employment, education, independent living and financial empowerment.
Institute for Community Inclusion has worked to ensure that people with disabilities have the same opportunity to dream big, and make their dreams a fully included, integrated, and welcomed reality. As a leader not only in Massachusetts, but also nationally and internationally, ICI strives to create a world where all people with disabilities are welcome and fully included in valued roles wherever they go, whether a school, workplace, volunteer group, home, or any other part of the community. All of ICI's efforts stem from one core value: that people with disabilities are more of an expert than anyone else. Therefore, people with disabilities should have the same rights and controls and maintain lives based on their individual preferences, choices, and dreams.The Institute on Community Inclusion focuses on the inclusion of children, youth and adults with disabilities in "all aspects of the community." The site provides links to publications and resources regarding transition, post-secondary education, employment, person-centered planning and a host of other topics. For more information contact the
