For Young People with Disabilities

At The HSC Foundation, we are here to help as you take the next step to adult life—whether it's finding a job, starting college, or living on your own.

This is an exciting time. As the door closes on one chapter of your life, another one is opening. Our resources can help you to prepare for these changes and find your path as you reach toward more independence.
