IAHD was established more than 60 years ago by a small group of families looking for supports for their loved ones. We remain true to our commitment to provide a range of individualized supports to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families in the Bronx and Westchester Counties. We start by listening to each person, celebrating their individual qualities and strengths. Our goal is to empower each person in their life's journey.

Presenting the 2021 Honorees:

IAHD’s Annual Awards event attracts nearly 300 business leaders and decision-makers in the private and public sectors from the greater NY metropolitan area; customers and potential customers from the Bronx and Westchester Counties. As a result of pivoting our fundraising efforts online due to pandemic restrictions, our audience has increased to hundreds more households and organizations throughout our region, the U.S., and worldwide.

Typically, this annual event includes a Silent Auction, a Destination Raffle and Sponsorship opportunities to raise funds to continue our mission to provide a holistic, lifetime empowering approach for each individual to ensure they reach their full potential and to live a fulfilled life on their terms!
