"We are here but for a short time. Roll up your sleeves and GIVE."
— Beaver Shriver, Founder
Our mission is to provide successful jobs for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and to spread our goal of inclusion for all.
An Inclusion Revolution
80% of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities are unemployed. Inclusion Revolution, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, supports our efforts to provide secure, successful jobs to help our employees form meaningful friendships with their peers; live independently; improve their public speaking, develop self-advocacy and communication skills; and feel valued and included by society. We celebrate and honor their special abilities!
Dignity and Respect
For too long, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities have been kept in the shadows. Inclusion Revolution supports Rise & Nye's coffee and ice cream shops to offer integrated employment, front and center in our communities. These shops are about inclusion, acceptance and opportunity for all. Visit our amazing Rise & Nye's team members in one of our inspiring shops, and please help change the life of another by donating today.
