Individuals with disabilities will benefit from a radically new kind of foundation to support them.
If we, as a foundation, expect to effectively support individuals with disabilities to adapt to their own physical, sensory, intellectual, or emotional limitations and to embrace new ideas, then we must adapt our own thinking.

The Laurus Foundation is committed to achieving results. We are committed to partnering closely with those organizations and non-profit groups that are producing results and enhancing the lives of individuals with disabilities.
