Plan Institute’s sister organization, Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network (PLAN), is a family-led non-profit organization dedicated to building inclusive communities for all citizens. We were founded in 1989 by parents who wanted to ensure their children could live a good life and contribute to their communities. While our founders were initially focused on their children with disabilities, the five components we use to define a good life are universal – loving friends and family, a home of one’s own, financial security, participating in decision making and the ability to contribute one’s unique gifts.
Together with families:
- We build personal support networks that empower contribution and full citizenship
- We implement plans to ensure loved ones with disabilities are safe and secure for their lifetime
- We bring together a network of families to provide mutual support and learning opportunities
