Providing Life-Changing Opportunities for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities


Dedicated to job placement and skill development, we empower participants for workplace success.

Enhancing everyday life skills through practical literacy, like reading lists and using digital interfaces

A DANI participant focused on an online session on a laptop in a cozy workspace. To the side, a pink vase with dried pampas grass and a colorful painted canvas add a touch of personalization. The participant's attention is on the screen, which shows a video conference, indicating a virtual learning or meeting scenario.


Focused on enhancing social skills, our program encourages meaningful interactions and community integration.

The group, attired in black, is inclusive, featuring a participant in a wheelchair. The stage is washed in dramatic purple lighting, setting the tone for the creativity and collaborative spirit evident in the preparations for the play.


Diverse artistic expressions from traditional painting to sculpturing, culminating in an exclusive art exhibition.

Two DANI participants focused on sculpting in a pottery workshop. The participant in the foreground, wearing a green top, carefully shapes a clay figure's facial feature, while the participant in the maroon sweater observes closely. The artwork appears to be a bust with detailed hair texture, reflecting the hands-on artistic activity of the session.
