Effective community engagement is when we listen and learn together from the people and organizations that we partner with. Since 2011, these are the organizations that have developed partnerships with the Human Development Institute’s KIHC to further enhance the collective mission of inclusion, equality, and improving the lives of all people who experience disability. Outcomes from these efforts have included project or program participation, disability and health or universal design training for staff, development of accessible resources shared in our resource library, and so much more. We are grateful for our partners! To learn about each partner, click on their logo below.
