The MoDE Foundation, born from the vision of six mothers in June 2018, strives for a brighter future for children with disabilities. Grounded in the belief that individuals with disabilities deserve quality educational experiences and supports, the foundation emphasizes inclusion of all children with disabilities. Recognizing the need for a charitable organization to support statewide initiatives, MoDE Foundation officially became a 501(c)(3) organization in October 2018. Since then, it has expanded both officially, by strengthening its Board of Directors, and informally, by fostering volunteer engagement. Additionally, the foundation is dedicated to legislative advocacy, amplifying efforts to address disability and inclusion issues at the state level.
