Project Title

Proyecto Amor Agape

Project Description

Migration is difficult, but can be necessary to offer a better quality of life to families. But when a disability diagnosis is present in one of our family members, migration requires extra effort. That’s why Proyecto Amor Agape serves as guidance to Hispanic families and primary caregivers of people with disabilities in searching for appropriate resources in their own language to support their development and comprehensive well-being from early childhood to adulthood in Texas. With the creation of a Disabilities’ Texas Welcome Guide, parents and caregivers will help their loved ones navigate the disabilities’ life maze and advocate for an inclusive educational, familiar, and social environment.
