Mission

Natalie’s Voice has three goals: to raise awareness that the people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are highly vulnerable to sexual assault, to empower caregivers with effective planning tools and to build community around response so that perpetrators are brought to justice.

Vision

We want every person with intellectual and developmental disabilities to have their voice be heard and to be unafraid of sharing their stories. Their voices can be heard through loving care providers, effective planning, adaptive technology and a consistent agency response system. All of these methods work together to fight against the normalization of sexual assault and the idea that it should not be reported and dealt with in a serious manner.

Values

As a family-driven organization founded on not only bringing awareness to sexual assault, but taking action against perpetrators, we have core values that we live by, and that we want more people to  understand and learn about.


Those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families, shall live their lives free from sexual assault.

Sexual assault is a crime, despite the cognitive level of the victim, and should be treated as such.

The typical world, with education and training, can better understand the response needs for victims with I/DD and their families.
