My Possibilities provides adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities with a path to inclusion through continued education and community employment.

Key to success is work-experience and a new for-profit, on-site transitional employment retail center that will support people with disabilities seeking competitive employment in the community.

Impact

  • 250,000 people in North Texas have an Intellectual and/or Developmental Disability (IDD).
  • 8% of adults with IDD are employed in Texas.
  • 625 adults with IDD served in 2018.
  • 50 adults with IDD placed in jobs in 2018.
  • MPact Retail Center would double the number of job placements possible.
