My Possibilities is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization serving adults with disabilities (Autism, down Syndrome, Asperger’s, Prader-Willi, head injuries, etc.)
More specifically, the organization is the FIRST full day, full year continuing education program in Collin County for disabled Texans who have “aged out” of secondary education.
My Possibilities began as the vision for three mothers of adult children with special needs in the Collin County area. In the spring of 2006 their children were soon to “graduate” high school. As a result, these dedicated moms began to investigate the opportunities for their children beyond high school. No programs or services existed in the North Texas area providing regular, full-time, quality, continuing education programs where their adult children could continue to learn, grow, volunteer, work and be a contributing member of their community. After a few small meetings, a few town hall meetings and a lot of hard work, the dream became a reality and My Possibilities opened in June of 2008.
Today, My Possibilities is considered a leader in the local community and throughout North Texas providing vocational training, socialization, opportunities, and independent living skills development for adults with disabilities. As the need continues to grow in our community, we are currently seeking new ways to expand our facilities and outreach in the North Texas area in hopes to continue to be the best option for families of this much under-served population.
