Strengthening Community for Individuals with Disabilities
Greenville CAN is a coalition of self advocates, service providers, families, caregivers, and professionals on a mission to make Greenville County a better place to live for individuals with disabilities. Greenville CAN is an initiative of the Barbara Stone Foundation.
Our Vision is a fully inclusive community with equitable opportunities for all.
Greenville CAN fulfills this mission by serving as a positive champion for disability related issues, engaging individuals with disabilities, connecting and convening community partners to facilitate action, while leveraging our collective resources to influence system change.
CAN Talks: Broaden Your Perspective – We are excited to announce the first annual CAN Talks event at Centre Stage on October 22, 2019. CAN Talks are similar to TED Talks but with a twist. Join us as six individuals with disabilities and special guest Ryan Niemiller from America’s Got Talent share their story from their perspective in order to broaden your perspective. Tickets are $15 and sponsorship opportunities are available. All proceeds will support the work of the Barbara Stone Foundation which includes Greenville CAN.
Join us and be part of the movement to make our community a better place to live for individuals with disabilities.

System Change: Equitable Opportunities
Individuals with disabilities can flourish when community, cultural, and organizational systems and policies provide equitable opportunities for all.
Equity ensures individuals get the support and access they need to participate fully in our society. Unfortunately, individuals with disabilities continue to be underrepresented in common areas of community life including employment, recreation, arts, sports, and civic engagement.
Changing community, cultural, and organizational systems and policies requires a collective commitment to a long-term vision that may take generations to come to fruition.

Your Opportunity to Make a Difference has never been better…
Every donation, large and small affects positive change.
Within our generation, people with disabilities were locked away from society with a belief that they had nothing useful to contribute. Although much progress has been made in the past fifty years, individuals with disabilities still struggle to be seen, heard, valued, and included. Your donation to the Barbara Stone Foundation supports the work of Greenville CAN.
YOU can be the difference. Please make a contribution today.
