The mission of Open Doors for Multicultural Families is to engage and partner with culturally and linguistically diverse individuals with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities (I/DD) and their families. We use a cultural brokerage model to navigate services, provide specialized programming and advocate for systems change. We envision a world where all culturally and linguistically diverse individuals with I/DD and their families thrive in an inclusive society of their design.
We offer programming for all different age ranges and in multiple languages. Program and services include: early learning inclusive playgroups; individualized case management support from bilingual/bicultural staff; parent and caregiver support groups; parent education workshops; peer engagement programs for youth; advocacy training; and social connection programming for adults with disabilities
