Assure the Future's mission is to provide enrichment activities not provided by the state for residents of the J. Iverson Riddle Developmental Center and to educate the community on ways to be inclusive of young children and adults with disabilities in everyday life.

Assure the Future supports a wide variety of projects and events at the Riddle Center.  Every gift makes a difference!
