A 2014 Samford graduate, Lindy Cleveland is an advocate for adults with developmental disabilities. While in school, she organized the outreach event Dance for Downs. Following graduation, she took a leap of faith and founded the nonprofit school UnlessU where she serves as Executive Director.
Lindy is passionate about serving her students and their families through continuing education, creating an environment that promotes independence. She imagines a world where adults with developmental disabilities are not seen through the lens of their disability but rather through what they offer their community.
