Community Resources for Youth


  • “The most important thing we do is help eliminate the social isolation felt by youth with disabilities. We create a place of belonging for those who wouldn’t otherwise have one,” Anna Dusbiber, Youth Services Coordinator.

    “Whether it’s getting out in the community and learning about things, or just watching movies and playing games – the Youth Program means being with friends and having support. The CIL has helped my life go forward. You guys are like my family. No – not ‘like.’ You are my family.” Ana Obando, who has spina bifida, has been involved with the Youth Program for over ten years.
