About Us

Young-Adults-Signing-ASLFor some kids, turning 21 isn’t the beginning of something great. It’s quite the opposite. Here in Pennsylvania, that milestone means young people with disabilities face the end of support, the end of school and, in some cases, the end of care. Let’s fix the system.


21 and Able is an initiative that is working to create a roadmap for youth with disabilities who are transitioning out of the education and supportive services system to work, live independently, and participate actively in their communities to the extent possible for each individual.


Convened by United Way of Allegheny County, 21 and Able is led by an advisory committee and working group of committed volunteers.
