ANCOR (American Network of Community Options and Resources) is a national, nonprofit trade association that represents 1,600+ private community providers of supports and services that enable more than one million individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to thrive. 

Nationwide, individuals with IDD rely on the services of Direct Support Professionals to live, work, and thrive in their communities, and the demand is growing rapidly. ANCOR’s National Advocacy Campaign (NAC) advocates for the resources necessary to recruit, train, and retain a healthy, sustainable direct support workforce. Our President & CEO Diane Beastrom serves as President of the ANCOR Board of Directors.
