What is Proud & Included?
Proud & Included is an initiative developed to serve individuals in Cook County with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (IDD) that identify as LGBTQ. This project is designed to empower adults with IDD and assist in their integration into the larger LGBTQ community through self-advocacy and event participation.
Our hope is participation in County wide LGBTQ community events will bridge the gap of social acceptance of sexual identity the IDD population struggles with daily.
