Do you know someone with autism, Down syndrome or a brain injury? Perhaps a family member or neighbor?
These are the people One Sky supports to be productive members of their local communities.
Like all of us, they want to make a lasting contribution and fulfill their dreams.
Many can do this without help. Others find that their quality of life is enhanced by individually tailored supports.
