Established in 2002, WITH Foundation (formerly known as Special Hope Foundation) is a private foundation. The Foundation’s initial grantmaking benefited the disability community. In 2011, the Foundation began to focus its support on organizations and projects that promote the establishment of comprehensive and accessible health care for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Currently, the Foundation gives out around $750,000 each year and has provided (in total) more than $6.5 million in funding support.

Rooted in Rights
Happy Mother’s Day! Today is a day where we all celebrate our mothers. But did you know that parents with disabilities are far more at risk of losing custody of their children than non-disabled parents? So if you’re someone with a disability who is expecting or is thinking about having children, watch and share this video of our Storyteller, Ivanova, preparing to become a first time mother. They show that with the right supports, people with disabilities can be parents.

Over the past few weeks, you have heard about the Universal Design Workshop that happened in March. We’ excited to share one of the materials used during the workshop! The NDA is available at: https://youtu.be/vMErJnjfeAo

This video is designed to provide a basic overview of what an NDA is. The video is used in combination with an annotated NDA which provides plain language descriptions of terms used within a company’s specific agreement. These tools assist in making the user testing process accessible for all. To learn more about these efforts, please see: withfoundation.org/digital-health-initiative
