FAADD (Filipino-American Association for Developmental Disabilities) is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization for people with developmental disabilities of FILIPINO descent.  See 501( C) status

The  Filipino-American community has its own population of people with  developmental disabilities.  Their needs, issues and concerns in many  respects are unique because of cultural and language differences.   The FAADD attempts to bridge these gaps through support group meetings, educational events such as workshops, field trips, and networking  with other community groups & service agencies.

FAADD  annual events, are  Christmas Celebration and a Summer Picnic  with attendance  of  about 100-250 Filipinos with  developmental disabilities with their  families and friends .  Support of these events come from   individuals organizations who donate  services, food, money etc.   We offer workshops, trainings, and trips to Disneyland when our funds allows. If interested to participate and to make donations for these events please contact us.  You are welcome to join, provide support or just to network for Fill-am  with special needs.
