People First

People First is a self-advocacy group directed by it’s members, people with developmental disabilities. We speak out for ourselves and others and we believe our disabilities are secondary: we are people first.

About Us

The People First of SLO originated over 20 years ago at Achievement House in San Luis Obispo. Several advocates decided to join together to support one another and improve working conditions there. Today we are an organization of more than 60 people with developmental disabilities known as People First of San Luis Obispo.
