BroadFutures is a new non-profit organization committed to promoting and facilitating successful entry into the workforce for young adults with learning disabilities that affect their attention, organization and social functioning.
- BroadFutures will initially serve the greater Washington Metropolitan area.
- Replication to a national scope is intended once success is achieved in the local metropolitan area.
- Replication will be achieved by working locally with communities and partnering with relevant stakeholders.
BroadFutures was founded by Diana Eisenstat, Brad Holmes, and Carolyn Jeppsen. The founders first came together when they served for several years as Board members of The Kingsbury Center, a 75-year-old educational institution, located in the District of Columbia and serving students with learning disabilities and their families.
During their tenure, the founders led Kingsbury through a CEO/Executive Director transition, as well as a major strategic planning effort. They are now passionately committed to serving together again in their new venture to address pressing workforce issues for young adults with learning disabilities and ensuring the broadening of workforce options and success for this promising group of young people. All of the founders are also proud parents of children with learning and other disabilities.
