All of us want to make a difference in the world by sharing our own distinct gifts and giving back in a way that is personally meaningful. The people with developmental disabilities that OPWDD supports are doing just that every single day in communities all across the state.

Their abilities, interests, hopes and dreams are as varied as the landscape of New York State itself. Please take a moment to meet a few of the people we support who are not only pursuing their own unique passions, but are making a difference in our lives and in our communities in the process.
