Organization Details
During this COVID-19 pandemic, we have adapted through the "new normal" and navigated new ways of work, socializing and communicating. It hasn't been easy, but it hasn't stopped anyone. We created the DMF Stay Connected platform that keeps young adults connected and engaged through fun activities like anime, yoga and cultural lessons from around the world. We introduced DMF Academy which provides a way to learn new business skills, money management, office skills tips and mental wellness guidance wherever they are. The goal was simple, to increase employability, work-related and independent living skills while avoiding isolation that commonly plagues people with disabilities. Our nations unemployment rate may be going down, although individuals with unique abilities have always had a challenge finding and maintaining employment. The de Moya Foundation has been working on changing society's perspective of individuals with developmental disabilities such as Autism, Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Fragile X, and Intellectual disability. We believe that these unique abilities benefit businesses and when given an opportunity, with the necessary support, young adults are set up to succeed.
