The Power of the Dream, Inc.  is an organization founded in 2008 by advocates to promote innovation and inclusion in our communities through encouragement of micro-enterprise opportunities for individuals with disabilities. 

Through the years, we have focused our efforts to encourage job creation and employment through the wonderful talents and gifts of individuals with autism &/or other intellectual / developmental disabilities in the NC Triangle area.  We know our community CAN reach the outcomes we all seek when we create learning opportunities and forge pathways toward collective impact in community together! 

Our advocacy work centers around education on topics that encourage choices and actions that lead to positive individual outcomes…. the kind that empowers individuals and families/supports to power their inner dreams toward creating the future that we all want to be a part of together!
