Our Mission and Inspiration
ProjectFREE Mission: ProjectFREE is a non-profit organization fueled by parents, educators, friends and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our mission is to implement a bold new concept for people with disabilities who have the ability, the desire, and the passion to live and work independently and become an integral part of the community.
Our Inspiration: Lauren’s Story – Lauren personifies what is possible when a person focuses on their abilities and breaks down barriers. From the day she was born, we recognized that her life would be about what she would achieve despite what the larger society might think is possible. Thirty years of challenges and successes—including being the first mainstreamed student in a public high school, a performing musician and holding down a job in the “real world”—still places Lauren in a world with very limited career and independent life options. Through living, learning, and working, every person can compete in, and contribute to their community and society at large.
