As young adults with disabilities age out of state education systems, they become segregated with minimal opportunities for employment, community involvement and inclusive living.

The Hive wants to be a part of the solution.

MakING a Donation

We have big dreams here at The Hive. The goal for housing and a community center focused on building inclusive environments where all our members can grow and thrive will require a significant amount of resources and support. We are honored to have both individuals and organizations partner with us in reaching our goals.

Become A Sponsor

Sponsors are needed to help us reach our goal of $100,000 by October 1, 2023.   We have a developer, we are looking for 5+ acres of land to house villas with 4 bedrooms and an apartment complex.

Get Involved

True inclusion requires individuals from all walks of life coming together to share their gifts and talents for the benefit of all. If you have a desire to grow diverse, inclusive communities we would love for you to join us.  Your involvement as a member, volunteer or donor puts us one step closer to our goal. Bright Future students are welcome to attain their volunteer hours here at The Hive.
