The Fifth Space offers staff of disability services a new kind of role and experience. 

20% paid time + a team + support to do Research & Development. Try out ideas that matter to you & the people you serve.


It’s been six-months since we rolled out the R.V and recruited 29 frontline, mid-level, and senior staff to join the Fifth Space. Since then, Fellows have formed six teams; left the office to do ethnographic field work; generated hundreds of ideas; and prototyped six new solutions to six different pain points. On July 14th, we created a pop-up exhibition and had over 150 folks give us feedback. Stay tuned for a virtual tour from Demo Day. In the meantime, download our latest Fifth Space newsletter to see all the teams in action.
