Disability Community

About Hand in Hand’s work with disability communities

Since we were founded in 2010, people with disabilities, many of whom employ home attendants, have been in leadership in Hand in Hand. People with disabilities have been in leadership in overall organizational development as well as our involvement in campaigns. We bring together people with disabilities in community to support each other in building mutually-positive relationships with the attendants we employ, to come together with workers to learn about each others communities (including how they overlap!) and take action together for change.
