Founder & Director
Andrew Oliver is the founder and director of Do For One NYC. He is a social service professional with 13 years of experience assisting adults with developmental disabilities as they make their own journey to acquire work, volunteer work, live at home more independently, or find a sense of belonging in their community. His ideas have been shaped by his training at the Training Institute for Human Services of Syracuse University, the Citizen Advocacy network, and Joni and Friends network. His work has also been informed by a range of experiences at his former employer Job Path, namely, by helping people with disabilities discover what they’re good at and finding employment and social networks that best match their contributions.
After graduating with an M.A from Teachers College, Columbia University in 2015, Jane moved to Jinja, Uganda to assist in founding a school for children with special needs under Ekisa Ministries. She is currently a Special Education teacher in the NYC public school system.

Her heart for the marginalized, combined with her wide range of experiences, will prove to be an incredible asset to this next chapter of Do For One’s story.
