It’s not just a party. ‘You wanna go where everybody knows your name!’

The TAP is bridging the gap between our friends with disability labels and their communities. When we come together, we ALL change. We party. We make friends. We help each other. We live better.

"I believe all humans are vulnerable and we need each other to make a way in this world-to live better lives!" -Daniel

“I think this is one of the most pure Christ-like ventures that I have ever seen in my life. The inclusion and acceptance of all and everybody is truly remarkable and astoundingly beautiful.” -Jason

“This was an awakening for me!”- John

“I cannot say enough about how valuable The TAP is, to bringing out the humanity of people.” -Senator John Marty

“I’ve never experienced anything like this. It was crazy, I’m coming back!” -Croix

“I bought tickets for $180 to a Josh Groban concert as a big surprise for my daughter, Mary. She very seriously said it was hard for her to choose between the concert and The TAP Halloween Party.  She chose The TAP! -Rachel

“I love what you guys are doing.” -Senator Foung

Making A Way
The TAP Story

A small band of ‘freedom fighters’ descend on a coffee shop on the east side of St. Paul, Minnesota:  The TAP.

These included attending friends: County representatives, local community members, other stakeholders, and…our valued friends.

What we found together was empowering.
