Our History

Community INC is a non-profit, charitable, organization that assists persons with disabilities find employment, and employers find qualified employees. We welcome donations from individuals/ businesses to assist in this work as government funding is not always adequate to fully support our programs and services.

The Community Inclusion Society  ("Community INC") was formed in 2008 from what was formerly known as the Valley Disability Partnership Society (VDPS, incorporated March 2001). We are a non-profit community based charitable organization working within our communities to promote inclusion of persons with disabilities.


Our transition from Valley Disability to Community INC reflects the larger cultural changes which are underlined, for example, by the recent (May 2008) international ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. 

We do not subscribe to the notion that the barriers to inclusion a person with disabilities may face are inherent in that person. Rather than requiring persons with disabilities to fit into existing frameworks, Community INC starts from the experiences of the individual and challenges society – for it's own good – to provide a meaningful place for everyone.

We strive to create a world where equality is assumed, not earned, and full citizenship is a right and not a privilege.
