Our Story

Stand Among Friends was formed in 1997 to build awareness, educate the community and provide “much needed” resources for youth and adults with disabilities. We have developed programs to address this need. Our programs included Job Readiness, Assistive Technology training (AT), and Vocational Evaluations to determine an individuals' skills, interests and aptitude to effectively prepare and place individuals with employment. Through community outreach efforts we have been able to expand and identify potential employers, volunteers, community services and employment options. Since 2008, Stand Among Friends has served more than 4,000 youth and adults with disabilities.
