Glennwood Seeks to Break
Down Barriers

Through an invitation for Glennwood parents and residents to present to students at Chapman's Disability, Families and Society: Issues of Professional Policy and Support class, students were able to regularly engage in dialog and gain first hand insights into the challenges faced by persons with intellectual / developmental disabilities.

Make everyday independence day.

The purpose of the Glennwood programs is to provide pathways to independence that ensure access and recognition of the importance and assurance of lasting peer relationships. Through Glennwood Support Services everyone has the opportunity to learn and grow with each individual supporting their peers, celebrating their diversity, and embracing each other’s contributions. The Glennwood programs promote increased self-esteem and assist adults with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities in developing the daily living skills necessary to live independently and live, work, and play in their local communities.

Persons with disabilities deserve the resources and support services necessary for equity and inclusion in their communities of choice. A critical area of need is safe affordable housing and Glennwood House of Laguna Beach was established to assist in meeting that need. It is also critical to address access to education, transportation, fulfilling employment, and the right of personal choice in daily living and lifelong goals.

Glennwood Housing Foundation, dba: Glennwood Support Services advocates for removing the barriers and creating pathways for self-determination, housing options, meaningful employment, early access to education, training, and volunteering opportunities. These pathways increase awareness and acceptance and validate the contributions of persons with special needs as participating members of their communities.
