Ready For Life, a 501c3 tax exempt organization, was founded in 2009 to advance the development and education of adults with disabilities.
Our Mission & Values
To provide young adults experiencing cognitive, learning and social disabilities opportunities to be challenged academically, build relationships and prepare for their transition into life. We exist to provide inclusive learning opportunities for adults with intellectual disabilities.
Here at Ready For Life our core values are inclusion (belong), autonomy (believe) and independence (become). Each triangle in our logo represents one of the core values and the steps in the process of reaching independence. We understand that independence cannot be reached without autonomy. And from our experience, autonomy comes from a culture of inclusion. As our clients/students are made to feel they belong they will learn new life skills that give them the confidence they need to achieve independence. And finally, after belonging and believing, they will continue to become productive contributors in our community! We believe in growth and forward movement.
Everything that we do at Ready For Life is shaped by these ideas! Our clients/students have found this to be a safe place to belong, believe, and become.
