Community Outreach/Involvement

As far as the movement for dignity and rights for people with developmental disabilities has come, we can never afford to forget the dark times when these individuals were shunned, overmedicated, relegated to institutions and too often exploited and abused. This Program provides a wealth of social, civic, educational and cultural opportunities not only for Members and staff to interact with others, but for ‘others’ to do the same. Only by seeing, meeting and interacting with those in any community can the larger society extend the rights and opportunities that our Members have always wanted and deserved.
