AbilityFirst celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

AbilityFirst, a Pasadena-based nonprofit helping individuals with developmental disabilities navigate life, is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month by recognizing important contributions in advocacy, art, culture, food, science, and music made from iconic individuals from Latin America.

Between September 15 and October 15, AbilityFirst will highlight stories on its social media pages of the many Latin American and Hispanic individuals within AbilityFirst programs. To view its Facebook page, visit facebook.com/AbilityFirstLA.

Our unique and diverse backgrounds is what make us stronger, and AbilityFirst workforce is comprised of individuals from many unique cultures and backgrounds. We are committed to creating spaces for everyone so that they may bring their whole selves to work.”
