About Pony Bird

Pony Bird exists to enrich the lives of individuals with disabilities. We achieve our mission through four core program areas: community living, community support services, employment, and family support & leisure.

Pony Bird is the culmination of two rich organizational histories. In July 2022, Pony Bird and NextStep for Life joined forces to create the new Pony Bird.
