LEAP of California
Leveraging Equal Access Program (LEAP) is a not-for-profit corporation set up to serve individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities. To leverage is to forge a mechanical advantage. LEAP’s mission is to be the mechanical advantage for those with intellectual or developmental disabilities to gain equal access to opportunity, full community integration, self-determination, and a person-centered life experience. We promote the dignity of risk and provide resources to level the playing field while using the “family home” as a home base for safety, dignity, and support. LEAP is dedicated to providing a home-like environment from which individuals served can navigate their own experience with the world.
