Hurricane Harvey wreaked havoc for many people living in the Houston region. The outpouring of support that followed brought with it many opportunities for renewal. Through a workforce development grant, and in partnership with a local community organization, the University of Houston Downtown created a program to address the workforce needs of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. With the support of UHD student mentors, this three semester, continuing education program gave participants their first ever opportunity to attend classes on a college campus, engage in a paid on campus internship, a paid off campus externship, a capstone class and graduation ceremony.
