21 & Change, Inc. is dedicated to ending the Down syndrome ‘syndrome’ through advocacy, support, and niche services in the Greater Tampa Bay-St. Petersburg area.
We believe in the value of all human lives and that all should have the opportunity to discover their full potential. We believe that everyone is born with the inherent right to freedom, to self-determination, to dignity, and respect. We believe in a day when our children will be seen as ‘differently-abled’ and not disabled. We believe there will be a day when we end the Down syndrome ‘syndrome’ and secure the full measure of civil rights for the ‘differently-abled’. We will not rest until what we believe is achieved.
Working with individuals to find and maintain employment within the community. We help a diverse group of people (including persons with disabilities, veterans, and youth in transition) find employment of their choosing. Jobs are targeted to an individual’s abilities, health status and goals.
