About Us

IGNITE Collective, Inc. was founded in 2013 to provide individualized supports to teens and adults with developmental disabilities in their communities. Since our inception we have grown to a family of passionate professionals who support people in Los Angeles, Ventura, and Mono Counties in California. We are proud to provide individualized supports that help people live the lives they want to live, and to collaborate with families and colleagues around the globe.


In addition to helping people achieve their goals, we engage in qualitative research, conference presentations, curriculum development, in-person workshops, consultation, and advisory roles.

We believe all people deserve a high quality of life.

Our Mission

We believe everyone has the right to a high quality of life. We strive to grow and support autonomy, fulfillment, and meaningful community engagement for all. We support people through positivity and collaboration:


  • Treating people like people

  • Welcoming all, regardless of dis/ability

  • Providing financial assistance to those who need it

  • Engaging in real-life experiences

  • Encouraging choice-making and autonomy

  • Having fun!


Our Values

We believe ...​

  • All people, regardless of diagnosis, speaking skills, conservatorship status, or any other factor can and should direct their own lives

  • Everyone has the right to real relationships

  • Speaking is not the only measure of intelligence

  • The least dangerous assumption is to include all people in all opportunities

  • All people want to and can learn, and higher education should be accessible to all

  • Autonomy and interdependence are essential to meaningful adult lives

  • People should be supported in choosing when, where, why, how, and with whom they engage in their communities

  • Collaboration is key to success
