The Beloved Community is a volunteer-run organization that builds inclusive community for young adults with intellectual and developmental disability by uncovering gifts & opportunity for contribution, building awareness of disability justice, growing through relationship & shared experience, and connecting the community through arts, conversations & civic engagement.

Though we lost funding in July of 2017, we have continued to build inclusive community through people’s generous gifts of their time, creative energy, and support. Please help us continue this work and expand our capacity over the next year.
