Lisa Trygg is the Senior Program Officer – Adults and Transitioning Youth with Disabilities for the May and Stanley Smith Charitable Trust. The Trust achieves significant, lasting and positive changes that promote well-being for individuals and communities. It aims to strengthen supportive services for adults and youth transitioning to adulthood with intellectual, developmental or physical disabilities, enabling them to maximize their ability to live independently, gain economic security through a rewarding job and engage in an inclusive community through social and recreational opportunities. Their grantmaking in the Adults and Transitioning Youth with Disabilities program area addresses four strategies – independent living, employment, community inclusion, and support for caregivers, who help make all this possible. Trygg is recognized as a global expert on disability issues and has keynoted at the Zero Conference at the United Nations.
