This nonprofit advocacy organization is dedicated to promoting the acceptance and inclusion of people of all abilities. Mr. Tibbs spearheaded initiatives to develop specialized programs tailored to the unique needs of individuals with disabilities, ensuring they received comprehensive services such as behavioral therapy, educational support, and social integration activities.
