Foundation Partners

The HSC Foundation has developed a dynamic network of partners across the country who are invested in helping young people with disabilities as they transition to adulthood and employment. Each of these partnerships brings a unique expertise and strength to maximize the potential reward for the children, youth, families and communities we all serve.

Our partners include grantees, alliances, and Youth Transitions Collaborative members. See a full list of Foundation partners ».


Most of the Foundation’s grantmaking is made through its National Youth Transitions Center (NYTC), a collaborative learning community to assist young people with disabilities and chronic illness as they move from school to adulthood and the world of work. Through the NYTC, we link youth and young adults to programs, resources and services that are focused on the following categories:

  • Youth development and leadership
  • Career exploration and development
  • Family supports and advocacy
  • Research and evaluation
  • Inclusion.

The HSC Foundation accepts grant proposals by invitation only. However, we welcome information on organizations, programs and services that assist young people with disabilities and their families. If you have something to share, please send us an email at


The HSC Foundation has developed strategic alliances with national organizations and government agencies. These alliances support Foundation programs and provide Youth Transitions Collaborative members with access to federal technical assistance and important policy decision makers.

Youth Transitions Collaborative

The Youth Transitions Collaborative is a group of more than 45 regional and national organizations that share a common mission: to empower youth and young people with disabilities as they enter adulthood and the world of work. Collaborative members also provide critical input to help shape and direct the National Youth Transition Center's planning and programming.
