For 40 years, TASH has advocated for human rights and inclusion for people with significant disabilities and support needs – those most vulnerable to segregation, abuse, neglect and institutionalization. TASH works to advance inclusive communities through advocacy, research, professional development, policy, and resources for parents, families and self-advocates. TASH ensures that all individuals have the opportunity to learn, work, and enjoy life amongst a diverse community of family, friends, and colleagues.
TASH has an uncompromising stand that all people have value and that everyone should be able to determine their own lives. What makes TASH different? We have the expertise to make it happen.”
